Speaker Bio: Prof. Eric Gill

Prof. Eric Gill

< Keynote Speaker & Panel Session

Eric W. Gill (Senior Member, IEEE) received the B.Sc. degree (Hons.) in physics and the M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John’s, NL, Canada, in 1977, 1990, and 1999, respectively.
In 1977, he was a Lecturer in physics with the College of the North Atlantic, St. John’s. Since 2000, he has been with the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Memorial University of Newfoundland, where he is currently a Professor Emeritus conducting research in theoretical and applied electromagnetics. Originally, his research interests were primarily associated with the scattering of high-frequency electromagnetic radiation from time-varying, randomly rough surfaces, with particular application to the use of surface wave radar in remote sensing of the ocean environment. In recent years, his interests have also included remote sensing using marine radar as well as scattering problems associated with sea ice and icebergs.
Dr. Gill, in addition to being the current Chair of the Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter of the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society, also holds memberships of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society and the American Geophysical Union.
