A faculty member at the University of New Mexico since 1988 and a Fellow of the IEEE since 2002, Dr. Schamiloglu is an active researcher in the Applied Electromagnetics Group.  The thrust of his research has been studying beam-wave interactions in high power sources of coherent electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetic effects on electronics, and related areas.  He has co-edited one book and co-authored another on this topic.  He has published over 130 refereed journal articles and his work has been cited over 4300 times.  His h-index is 29.  He was been Principal Investigator on grants and contracts for over $29M.  He is a recipient of a 2011, 2012, and a 2013 UNM.STC Creativity Award. He was selected as a University of New Mexico Academic Leadership Fellow for 2013-2015. He was awarded the 2013 IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society’s Richard F. Shea Distinguished Member Award, the 2014 IEC “1906 Award” Recognizing an Expert’s Exceptional Contributions, and the 2015 IEEE NPSS PPST Peter Haas Award. He serves on the External Advisory Board for Sandia National Laboratories’ Radiation Effects/High Energy Density Science Foundation, on the Air Force Research Laboratory’s High Energy Density Plasmas Program’s External Review Panel, and on the Board of Visitors for the Army’s extramural basic research program in electronics (ARO).
