Marko Bosiljevac - Biography

Marko Bosiljevac was born in Zagreb, Croatia, where he graduated and received his PhD from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) of the University of Zagreb in 2005 and 2012. respectively. Since 2006 he has been with the Department of Communication and Space Technologies at FER; 2006-2012 as Research Assistant, 2012-2016 as Senior Assistant, 2016-2021 as Assistant Professor and since 2021 as Associate Professor. He is a lecturer in the field of wireless and optical communications, and sensor systems. Since 2016 he has been a member of ERASMUS Committee at FER and coordinator for the study of Information and Communication Technologies for all student exchange programs. Also from 2022 he is an elected member of the University of Zagreb Council for Technical Sciences.

His current research interests include development of novel electromagnetic transmission structures, antennas and metasurfaces, remote sensing systems based on ground based synthetic aperture radars and fiber optic sensors. In 2012 he defended his doctoral dissertation entitled "Efficient analysis of curved and periodic electromagnetic structures using asymptotic forms of Green's functions", for which he was awarded the Silver Plaque. "Josip Lončar" for an exceptional doctoral dissertation and scientific work. In the period between 2010 and 2012, he was for several periods a visiting researcher at the University of Siena, where he participated in the project of developing electromagnetic lenses made using quasi-periodic structures. Since 2015, in cooperation with EPFL Switzerland, he has been working on the development of analytical and numerical models for propagation in the human body and participated in the organization of a series of workshops related to this topic. Since 2018, he has been continuously collaborating with KTH Stockholm and UC3M Madrid on the development of periodic structures with sliding symmetry, and since 2019 he is a member of the steering committee of the COST project CA18223 "Future communications with higher-symmetric engineered artificial materials". He is author or co-author of more than 100 publications in scientific journals and conference proceedings as well as several book chapters and other articles, patents and presentations.

He participated in a number of projects and is currently the manager of one project of the Croatian Science Foundation, one bilateral project and a collaborator on several other projects. Thanks to his successful activities in the optical field, he participated in the founding of the Laboratory for Applied Optics (AOLab - Applied Optics Lab) at FER, whose teaching and research activities are related to optical sensors, nonlinear optical effects and passive optical networks.

Since 2006 he has been an active member of the IEEE, in particular the Croatian Chapter on Antennas and Propagation where he currently serves as Chapter Chair. From 2006 he actively participates in EuCAP and EurAAP activities. In particular, since 2012. he has been a member of the organizing committee of two doctoral schools within the European School of Antennas (ESoA), namely „Advanced Mathematics for Antenna Analysis". and "Metasurfaces for Antennas". Also, within ESoA and EurAAP, he was administrator of the ESoA Facebook page from 2010 to 2020 and participated in organization of several activities within EurAAP. Additionally, he has been a member of the organization committee of ICECom conferences held in Dubrovnik since 2005, and assistant editor in the magazine "Automatika" since 2018.
