R. Zoughi (S’85-M’86-SM’93-F’06) received his B.S.E.E, M.S.E.E, and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering (radar remote sensing, radar systems, and microwaves) from the University of Kansas where from 1981 until 1987 he was at the Radar Systems and Remote Sensing Laboratory (RSL). Currently he is the Schlumberger Endowed Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), formerly University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR). Prior to joining Missouri S&T in January 2001 and since 1987 he was with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Colorado State University (CSU), where he was a professor and established the Applied Microwave Nondestructive Testing Laboratory (amntl) (http://amntl.mst.edu/). Dr. Zoughi held the position of Business Challenge Endowed Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering from 1995 to 1997 while at CSU. He has been the recipient of numerous teaching awards both at CSU and Missouri S&T.
He is the author of a textbook entitled “Microwave Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation Principles” KLUWER Academic Publishers, 2000, and the co-author of a chapter on Microwave Techniques in the book entitled “Nondestructive Evaluation: Theory, Techniques, and Applications” Marcel and Dekker, Inc., 2002. He is the co-author of over 590 journal papers, conference proceedings and presentations and technical reports.
He served as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (2007-2011), two terms as an at-large AdCom member of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement (I&M) Society, I&M Society President (2014-2015) and serves as an I&M Society Distinguished Lecturer. He is the recipient of the 2007 IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society Distinguished Service Award, the 2009 American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) Research Award for Sustained Excellence and the 2011 IEEE Joseph F. Keithley Award in Instrumentation and Measurement. In 2013 he and his co-authors were the recipients of the H. A. Wheeler Prize Paper Award from the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (APS). He served as the General Co-Chair of the 2013 IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference (I2MTC). In 2015 and 2017 he served on the IEEE Technical Activities Board (TAB) Publications Services & Products Board (PSPB), and was elected as an at-large IEEE PSPB member (2016-2018).
He has eighteen patents to his credit all in the field of microwave nondestructive testing and evaluation. He is also a Fellow of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT).
