Elena Semouchkina is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan Tech and an adjunct professor at the Pennsylvania State University. She received an MS in Electrical Engineering and a PhD in Physics and Mathematics from Tomsk State University, in Russia, and a second PhD in Materials from Penn State. Before joining the Penn State faculty, Semouchkina had been working in prominent Russian scientific centers, i.e., Siberian Physics-Technical Research Institute, Ioffe Physics-Technical Institute of Russian Academy of Science, and St. Petersburg State Technical University. She was a recipient of the best PhD thesis award from the Penn State Materials Research Institute, and the NSF Fellows Award from the ADVANCE Program: Increasing the Participation and Advancement of Women in Academic Science and Engineering Careers. Semouchkina is an associate editor of the IEEE Antenna and Wireless Propagation Letters, a panelist of the National Science Foundation, and an expert of the Directorate-General for Research of the European Commission and of the French National Research Agency. She is a co-organizer of the IEEE Women in Electromagnetics (WiEM) Workshop and a member of the International Program Committee of the IASTED International Conference on Antennas, Radar and Wave Propagation.
