EMSCAN is extremely proud of its Technical Advisory Board members and their distinguished backgrounds as they provide the highest level of technical thought leadership available.
Technical Advisory Board
Jean-Charles Bolomey, Professor Emeritus, Paris-Sud University, France
Graduated as Radio Engineer from Ecole Superieure d’Electricite (Supelec) in 1963, Jean-Charles Bolomey received his Ph.D. degree from Paris-Sud University in 1971, where he became Professor in 1976. Since, his research activity, deliberately oriented toward transfer and valorization of innovative technologies, has been continuously devoted to near-field techniques in a broad sense, including antenna measurement, EMC testing, dosimetry assessment and ISM applications.
He has actively promoted the modulated probe array technology, and, holder of numerous patents, he founded the microwave vision company SATIMO in 1986. In 2002, he received the Distinguished Achievement Award of the Antenna Measurement Technique Association (AMTA). Professor Bolomey is S. Gillespie Fellow of AMTA and Fellow of the Institution of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).
He was a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society from 2011 to 2013. He is currently contributing to several Scientific Advisory Boards of European Institutions and startup companies.
Edward B. Joy, Professor Emeritus, M.S.E.E., B.E.E. Georgia Institute of Technology
Dr. Joy is Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology where he received his B.E.E., M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering. During his Ph.D. studies he was recognized as Research Fellow for Schlumberger, NASA and Scientific Atlanta.
Dr. Joy is a Life Fellow of the IEEE, "for contributions to the theory, techniques and applications of near-field antenna measurements" and Fellow of the Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA) "for contributions to near-field, compact and polarization measurement techniques." He is the recipient of the 1997 Georgia Tech Continuing Education Award, and the 1999 AMTA Distinguished Achievement Award.
He is also a distinguished researcher and author in the area of antenna and near-field technology. His work includes six key reference books, 25 Monographs/short course texts, and several published papers. His innovative and ground breaking work has also afforded him three different U.S. patents.
Adiseshu Nyshadham, Ph.D, M.Eng, B.Eng
Dr. Nyshadham brings thirty years of experience in R&D, commercial and military electronics systems engineering with teaching, analysis, design, modeling, test and regulatory approval expertise to the table. He has significant specialization in antennas, EMI/EMC/EME/ESD, Biomedical, and custom Test Automation, Turnkey Test Facility Projects (Antenna Test Range, Semi and Fully Anechoic Chambers).
He launched a highly successful consulting organization to provide end-to-end system and training services in the area of EMI/EMC/ESD antenna, shielding, power, protection, distribution, grounding, and automation. He has been responsible for development of designer diagnostic Electromagnetic tools for effective and efficient product developments. As a Technical Lead, he also completed a turnkey project of creating novel and efficient EMC test facilities.
Amongst his various other distinctions, in 1992, Dr. Nyshadham won the Indian Independence Day Award for Innovative Inventions for his work on missile seeking system in W-BAND. He has also been lead and co-author of 26 technical reports, journal publications and symposia.
Mr. David Riley has more than 40 years of experience in the EMC, RF and Wireless industries. He is a co-founder and currently a Director of IndexSAR, a company specializing in the manufacture of SAR and near-field test systems for the wireless industry.
After training with the telecoms division of the UK Post Office (now BT), Mr. Riley joined their research and development laboratories. He then moved to a small startup company, and led the development a small portable VHF/UHF test receiver that was the foundation of a range of measuring receivers for both EMC and Cellular Network test applications. He was the co-founder and joint MD of Chase Electronics Ltd. that then became the core of the Chase group of companies and was later acquired by Schaffner. He was the instigator in the development and promotion of the ultra-broadband 'Bi-Log' antenna that is now an EMC industry standard.
Mr. Riley has served on a number of national and international standards groups including CISPR and the CTIA. He was a founding member of the EMCTIA (EMC Test Industry Association).
Doug Smith, B.E.E.E, M.S.E.E.E
Mr. Smith held an FCC First Class Radiotelephone license by age 16 and a General Class amateur radio license at age 12. He received a B.E.E.E. degree from Vanderbilt University in 1969 and an M.S.E.E. degree from the California Institute of Technology in 1970. The same year, he joined AT&T Bell Laboratories as a Member of Technical Staff. He then retired in 1996 as a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff. From February 1996 to April 2000 he was Manager of EMC Development and Test at Auspex Systems in Santa Clara, CA.
Mr. Smith currently is an independent consultant specializing in high frequency measurements, circuit/system design and verification, switching power supply noise and specifications, EMC, and immunity to transient noise. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a former member of the IEEE EMC Society Board of Directors.
His technical interests include high frequency effects in electronic circuits, including topics such as Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), Electrical Fast Transients (EFT), and other forms of pulsed electromagnetic interference. He has also been involved with FCC Part 68 testing and design, telephone system analog and digital design, IC design, and computer simulation of circuits. He has been granted over 15 patents, several of which are for measurement apparati.
