Max Ammann is Director of the Antenna and High Frequency Research Centre, School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Dublin Institute of Technology. He spent eight years on radio systems engineering and antenna design for TCL/Philips Radio Communications Systems, Dublin, where he commissioned the Nationwide Communications Network for An Garda Síochana.
His research interests broadly include electromagnetic theory, antenna miniaturization for terminal and ultra wideband applications (UWB), antennas for medical devices and the integration with photovoltaic systems.
He has in excess of 200 peer-reviewed papers published in journals and international conferences. Professor Ammann is a member of the EurAAP working group on Small Antennas and his team received various best paper awards at international conferences on Antennas and Propagation and several commercialization awards. As a member of the IEEE International Committee for Electromagnetic Safety, he participated in the revision of the IEEE Std. C95.1, 2005 standard for Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3 kHz to 300 GHz. He chaired and organized special sessions on small antennas, UWB antennas and UWB Wireless Communication Systems at EuCAP and IEEE APS & VTC.
He is currently associate editor for the IEEE Antennas & Wireless Propagation Letters.
