Biography

Jian-Ming Jin received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in applied physics from Nanjing University, Nanjing, China, in 1982 and 1984, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1989.

He joined the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1993 and is currently the Y. T. Lo Chair Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director of the Electromagnetics Laboratory and Center for Computational Electromagnetics. He has authored and co-authored over 254 papers in refereed journals and 20 book chapters, in addition to over 359 conference papers and 130 invited talks. He has also authored The Finite Element Method in Electromagnetics (Wiley, 1st edition 1993, 2nd edition 2002, 3rd edition 2014), Electromagnetic Analysis and Design in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CRC, 1998), Theory and Computation of Electromagnetic Fields (Wiley, 1st edition 2010, 2nd edition 2015), and co-authored Computation of Special Functions (Wiley, 1996), Fast and Efficient Algorithms in Computational Electromagnetics (Artech, 2001), and Finite Element Analysis of Antennas and Arrays (Wiley, 2008). His current research interests include computational electromagnetics, scattering and antenna analysis, electromagnetic compatibility, high-frequency circuit modeling and analysis, bioelectromagnetics, and magnetic resonance imaging. He was elected by ISI as one of the world's most cited authors in 2002.

Dr. Jin was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in 2000 "for contributions to computational electromagnetics and its applications to antennas, radar scattering, microwave circuits, and biomedical technology." He is also a member of Commision B of USNC/URSI and Tau Beta Pi, and a Fellow of Electromagnetics Academy and Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society. He was a recipient of the 1994 National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award, the 1995 Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, and the 1999 Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society Valued Service Award. He also received the 1997 Xerox Junior Research Award and the 2000 Xerox Senior Research Award presented by the College of Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and was appointed as the first Henry Magnuski Outstanding Young Scholar in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1998 and later as a Sony Scholar in 2005. He was appointed as a Distinguished Visiting Professor in the Air Force Research Laboratory in 1999 and was awarded Adjunct, Visiting, Guest, or Chair Professorship by City University of Hong Kong, University of Hong Kong, Anhui University, Beijing Institute of Technology, Peking University, Southeast University, Nanjing University, Zhejiang University, and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. His name appeared 22 times in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's List of Excellent Instructors. His students have won the best paper awards in IEEE 16th Topical Meeting on Electrical Performance of Electronic Packaging and 25th, 27th, 31st, and 32nd Annual Review of Progress in Applied Computational Electromagnetics. He served as an Associate Editor and Guest Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, Radio Science, Electromagnetics, Microwave and Optical Technology Letters, and Medical Physics. He was the Symposium Co-chairman and Technical Program Chairman of the Annual Review of Progress in Applied Computational Electromagnetics in 1997 and 1998, respectively, and received the 2014 ACES Technical Achievement Award "for numerous contributions to the development of finite elements in electromagnetics" and the 2016 ACES Computational Electromagnetics Award "for pioneering work in the development of finite elements in electromagnetics." In 2015, he received the 2015 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Chen-To Tai Distinguished Educator Award and IEEE Antennas and Propagation Edward E. Altschuler AP-S Magazine Prize Paper Award, and was appointed as the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Distinguished Lecturer.
