Professor Miroslav Joler

Waveguides and Antennas

University of Rijeka

Miroslav Joler received his BS degree in electrical engineering from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, Croatia, in 1996, and his MS. and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, USA, in 2001 and 2006, respectively.

From 2000 to 2005, he worked as a research and teaching assistant, during which he also received the University of New Mexico Graduate Office's 2001 Research, Proposal, and Travel Award. In 2006, he was with Portland State University, Portland, USA, where he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Physics.

In 2007, he joined the Faculty of Engineering, University of Rijeka, Croatia, where he was appointed Assistant Professor. In 2008, he was also appointed as Chair of the Department of Computer Engineering. He also worked as Adjunct Assistant Professor with the Faculty of Maritime Studies, University of Rijeka. In 2013, he was appointed an Associate Professor and in 2018, he became Full Professor, both with the Faculty of Engineering, University of Rijeka, where, amongst other duties, he has founded and served as Wireless Communications Lab Director, Head of the Communications Systems Group, and Graduation Committee Chair.

Miroslav's industry experience includes a position as an RF engineer with the Transmitters and Links Division of Croatian Radio and Television from 1996 to 1999, where he worked on analysis of terrain coverage by TV and radio signals, network planning, and design of new broadcast towers and antenna systems. His academic expertise includes teaching labs, undergraduate and graduate courses. He has also advised numerous students for their graduation theses and worked on scientific projects in the USA and Croatia.

Miroslav has published in prominent scientific journals and participates at international scientific conferences, where he has also served as session (co-)chair and as an international committee member. He has also held invited talks and has served as a reviewer for multiple scientific publications and conferences, mostly the IEEE, and also as a reviewer for the Ministry of Science, Education, and Sports of the Republic of Croatia, a proposal evaluator for the Science and Technology Park of the University of Rijeka, and project report evaluator for Croatian Science Foundation. Prior to joining Cambridge Scholars Publishing, he has also served as an editorial board member for the Open Journal of Antennas and Propagation of Scientific Research Publishing since 2013. In 2017, he was elected Associate to Croatian Academy of Engineering.

His research work has previously focused on real-time remote control of devices over the internet, the optimization of a compact pulse-forming line for high-power system, and the design of reconfigurable antennas and self-recoverable antenna arrays. His current research interests include the development of smart clothing, wearable and adaptive antennas, biomedical applications of electromagnetics, and urban models of wireless power transfer.
