Prof.Dr.Levent SEVGI




Born in Akhisar / Turkey on 1st January 1958.
He received his BsEE, MsEE and PhD degrees in Electronic Engineering from Istanbul Technical University (ITU) in 1982, 1984 and 1990, respectively. In 1987, while working on his PhD, he was awarded a fellowship that allowed him to work with Prof. L. B. Felsen at Weber Research Institute / New York Polytechnic University York for two years. His work at the Polytechnic concerned the propagation phenomena in non-homogeneous open and closed waveguides.

He was with Istanbul Technical University (1991–1998), TUBITAK-MRC, Information Technologies Research Institute (1999–2000), Weber Research Institute/Polytechnic University in New York / USA (1988–1990), Scientific Research Group of Raytheon Systems, Canada (1998 – 1999), Center for Defense Studies, ITUV-SAM (1993 –1998 and 2000–2002) and with University of Massachusetts, Lowell (UML) MA/USA as a full-time faculty (2012 – 2013) and with Doğuş University (2001-2014). Since Sep 2014, he has been with Okan University.

He has been involved with complex electromagnetic problems and complex communication and radar systems for nearly three decades. His research study has focused on propagation in complex environments, analytical and numerical methods in electromagnetic, EMC/EMI modeling and measurement, communication, radar and integrated surveillance systems, surface wave HF radars, FDTD, TLM, FEM, SSPE, and MoM techniques and their applications, RCS modeling, bio-electromagnetics. He is also interested in novel approaches in engineering education, teaching electromagnetics via virtual tools. He also teaches popular science lectures such as Science, Technology and Society.

He is a Fellow member of the IEEE, an AdCom member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) (2013 - 2015), the writer/editor of the “Testing ourselves” Column in the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine (since Feb 2007) and a member of the IEEE AP-S Education Committee (Jun 2006 -), a member of the IEEE AP-S Field Award Committee (Jan 2018 -). He is also a member of several editorial boards (EB), such as the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine (Feb 2007 -), the IEEE Access (2017 - 2019), Wiley’s International Journal of RFMiCAE (Jan 2002 - ), etc.
He has published more than 10 books in English and Turkish, nearly 200 journal/magazine papers/tutorials and attended 100+ international conferences/symposiums.

His three books Complex Electromagnetic Problems and Numerical Simulation Approaches (2003), Electromagnetic Modeling and Simulation (2014) andRadiowave Wave Propagation and Parabolic Equation Modeling (2017, with Gökhan Apaydın) were published by the IEEE Press & Wiley. His fourth book A Practical Guide to EMC Engineering (2017) was published by ARTECH House
