Home Page:
Dr. Shurun Tan joined the Zhejiang University / University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Institute as an assistant professor in January 2019. He is also affiliated with the College of Information Science and Electronic Engineering, Zhejiang University, the State Key Laboratory of Modern Optical Instrumentation, Zhejiang University, and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research interests are on electromagnetic (EM) theory, computational and applied electromagnetics with a focus on EM scattering, EM sensing, EM environment, EM compatibility and reliability. These include wave propagation and scattering in natural random media and artificial periodic wave-functional structures, radar and radiometric geophysical remote sensing of terrestrial snow, polar ice sheet, sea ice, ocean, and vegetated land surfaces, channel characterization and manipulation for advanced wireless communication, complex electromagnetic environment and reliability for connected vehicles, electromagnetic integrity and heterogeneous integration of neuromorphic chip, electromagnetic scattering and characterization of nanoscale structure, electromagnetic wave interaction with charged particles, and bio-electromagnetics, etc. Shurun Tan was born in Gaomi, Shandong, China. He received the B.Eng. from the School of Information Science and Engineering and the honorary Chien-Shiung Wu College of the Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in June 2009. He received the M.Sc. from the School of Information Science and Engineering and the State Key Lab of Millimeter Waves at the Southeast University in March 2012. He received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Radiation Laboratory at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, in December 2016. From Dec. 2010 to Nov. 2011, he was a visiting student at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the University of Houston, Houston, TX, USA. From Sep. 2012 to Dec. 2014, he was a PhD candidate at the Department of Electrical Engineering, the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA. From Jan. 2015, he had been affiliated with the Radiation Laboratory, and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, first as a PhD candidate, and then as a postdoctoral research fellow since Jan. 2017 till Dec. 2018. Shurun Tan is an associated editor of the journal Progress In Electromagnetic Research (PIER) and he serves in the Progress In Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) conference publication committee. He reviews for more than 10 renowned academic journals and international conferences. By August 2021, he has published 35 journal papers in leading academic journals and more than 130 conference papers and abstracts, and he has contributed to one book chapter. He was the recipient of the Young Scientist Award in the 2018 PIERS at Toyama, Japan. Under his supervision, his student won the best student paper award in PIERS 2019 at Xiamen, China. He was awarded in the Long-term Innovative Talent Program in the Innovation Jiaxing Project in March 2021. He is a member of the American Engineering Honor Society Tau Beta Pi.
