Computer-aided and knowledge-based modeling, design and optimization of RF and microwave circuits. Jose Rayas-Sanchez
José Ernesto Rayas-Sánchez received the B.Sc. degree in electronics engineering from ITESO, Guadalajara, Mexico, the Master’s degree in electrical engineering from Monterrey Tec, Monterrey, Mexico, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from McMaster University, Ontario, Canada. He is Profesor Numerario (honorary distinction) with ITESO – The Jesuit University of Guadalajara (https://desi.iteso.mx/erayas/), where he is Chair of the Doctoral Program in Engineering Sciences (https://posgrados.iteso.mx/doctorado-ciencias-ingenieria). He leads the Research Group on Computer-Aided Engineering of Circuits and Systems (CAECAS) at ITESO (https://desi.iteso.mx/caecas/). He is a member of the Mexican National System of Researchers (SNI, for its initials in Spanish). His research focuses on computer-aided and knowledge-based modeling, design and optimization of high-frequency electronic circuits and devices. Dr. Rayas-Sánchez is Chair of the Technical Committee on Computer Aided Design (MTT-1, https://tc1.mtt-tcc.org/) of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S). He is member of the Technical Program Reviewers Committee of the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS). He serves as reviewer for many scientific publications, including IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, and the International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering (Wiley InterScience). He was the General Chair of the First IEEE MTT-S Latin America Microwave Conference (LAMC-2016, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Dec. 2016, http://2016.lamc-ieee.org/). During 1994-1996, he was the IEEE Guadalajara Section Chair. During 2004-2005, he was the IEEE Mexican Council Chair, as well as the IEEE Region 9 Treasurer. Since 2013, he is IEEE MTT-S Regional Coordinator for Latin America (https://www.mtt.org/adcom-committees). He has been an elected AdCom member of the IEEE MTT-S for the period 2016-2021 (https://www.mtt.org/adcom-elected-members).
