Simon Adrian received the Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Munich, Germany, in 2009, the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA, in 2010, the Diplom-Ingenieur (Dipl.-Ing.) degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from the TUM in 2012, and the Doktor-Ingenieur (Dr.-Ing) degree from the TUM and the École nationale supérieure Mines-Télécom Atlantique Bretagne Pays de la Loire (IMT Atlantique), Brest, France, in 2018.
From 2012 to 2019, he was research assistant at the TUM. In 2018, he was Visiting Professor with the Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy. From 2019 to 2020, he was a Senior Engineer with Infineon AG, Neubiberg, Germany. Since 2020, he is Assistant Professor with the University of Rostock. His research interest is in computational electromagnetics with a focus on integral equation solvers. In particular, he is interested in preconditioning techniques, low-frequency stable formulations, and fast solvers. Areas of application include antenna modeling and bio-electromagnetic problems.
Dr. Adrian has been a member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Education Committee since 2016, where he has been chair of the Student Activities Subcommittee since 2021. He has been member of the Union Radio-Scientifique Internationale (URSI) since 2018. He has been an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation since 2020 and of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine since 2021. He is laureate of an IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Pre-Doctoral Research Award and an IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Doctoral Research Award. He was awarded with the Kurt-Fischer-Preis 2012 for his diploma thesis. His contribution to the student paper competition at IEEE APS/URSI Symposium in 2013 was selected as an honorable mention paper. He received the Second Prize in the Third International URSI Student Prize Paper Competition of the URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium 2014, the Best Young-Scientist-Paper Award of the Kleinheubacher Tagung 2014, the Third Prize Student Paper Award of the IEEE APS/URSI Symposium 2015, the First Prize EMTS 2016 Young Scientist Best Paper Award of the URSI International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory 2016, the Third Prize Student Paper Award of the IEEE APS/URSI Symposium 2018, and the Dr.-Georg-Spinner-Hochfrequenz-Preis for the doctoral thesis in 2018.
