Biography

Christian Fager (IEEE Senior Member) received his Ph.D. degree from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, in 2003. Since 2015, he is a Professor at the Microwave Electronics Laboratory at the same university where he also is Deputy Director of the GHz Centre (link is external) for industrial collaborations. During the summer of 2014, he was a Visiting Scholar at University of California, San Diego.

His research is mainly in the area of energy efficient and linear transmitters for future wireless communication and sensor systems. His research includes nonlinear transistor modeling, efficient power amplifier architectures, nonlinear distortion analysis and behavioral modeling, digital pre-distortion linearization, nonlinear and wideband measurement techniques.

He is co-inventor of 5 patents/patent applications and published more than 130 papers in refereed international journals and conferences. He also co-authored the book: Nonlinear Transistor Model Parameter Extraction Techniques (Cambridge University Press, 2011).

He serves as a TPC member of the IEEE IMS and INMMiC conferences. Dr. Fager is currently an Associate Editor of IEEE Microwave Magazine. He is a member of the MTT-20 (Wireless Communications) MTT-S technical committee.
