Prof. Dragos Dancila

Dr. Dragos Dancila graduated magna cum laude as an Electrical Engineer from Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in 2006 and received a Ph.D. degree in Applied Sciences in 2011 from UCL, in collaboration with IMEC. He received also a Complementary Master in Business Management, from the Solvay Business School, Brussels. He is author or co-author of more than 50 publications including journals and conferences. He received the best measurement paper award at EUCAP 2013, when he was involved with Vinnova project: Skin cancer diagnostic tool based on micromachined interface for high-resolution THz spectroscopy (MTSSC). He has been granted the WIPO patent: A microfabricated sensor and a method of detecting a component in bodily fluid, in the field of microwave sensors for biomedical applications. He translated into French two reference books in the field of microelectronics (Fundamentals of electric circuits by Alexander and Microelectronic Circuits by Sedra) and is presently teaching Electronics and Analogue electronics courses to clases of about hundred students, in Civ. Engineering education. His research interests are in the areas of milimeterwave and terahertz adaptive and integrated antennas, RF-MEMS technology and RF sensors for biomedical applications, such as: skin cancer detection and glucose monitoring. He is working with the solid state RF power amplifier development at the FREIA Laboratory. In October 2014 he became Biträdande Universitestlektor at Uppsala University. Associtate Professor in June 2018. PI of H2020 Eurostars project: "Energy Efficient PET Cancer Diagnostics: Novel RF Source for Radioisotope Production – ENEFRF". Project Leader: Vinnova, 2014, “Development of an advanced millimetre-wave front-end circuitry for use in medical sensing”, Vinnova, 2016-2018, “60 GHz beam-steering solution with phased array systems”; Vinnova, 2018-2021, “5G mmWave RFIC with Antenna In Package for CPE Applications” . SSF project: MEMS terahertz systems. Researcher at FREIA on solid-state power amplifiers.
