Manos M. Tentzeris, Ken Byers Professor in Flexible Electronics at the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Manos M. Tentzeris, a professor at the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been appointed as a Distinguished Lecturer by the IEEE Electronic Packaging Society (EPS). The recognition is considered one of the highest honors within the society.

EPS Distinguished Lecturers are selected from among EPS Fellows, award winners, and society leaders. Selected experts are highly regarded members of the technical community and renowned experts in their respective fields. They are invited to deliver lectures and courses at EPS events, including chapters, conferences, workshops, symposia, and IEEE Student Chapter events.

Notably, Tentzeris has previously served as a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Microwave Theory and Technology Society (MTT) and the IEEE Council on Radio Frequency Identification (CRFID), highlighting his exceptional contributions across multiple societies within IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).

Since 2016, Tentzeris has held the Ken Byers Professorship in flexible electronics in ECE. He joined the faculty in 1998 and leads the ATHENA Research Group. Tentzeris’ research specializes in 3D Printed RF electronics, antennas and modules, flexible and conformal electronics and phased antenna arrays up to sub-THz, origami and morphing electromagnetics, Highly Integrated/Multilayer Packaging for RF and Wireless Applications using ceramic and organic flexible materials, “green” paper-based RFIDs and sensors, nanostructures for RF, wireless sensors, energy harvesting and wireless power transfer/wireless power grids, reconfigurable intelligent metasurfaces, heterogeneous integration and SOP-integrated (UWB, multiband, conformal) antennas.

As an EPS Distinguished Lecturer, Tentzeris will deliver lectures on Smart Cities, Smart Agriculture, Smart Manufacturing/Industry 4.0, and Digital Twin domains.
