Michael E. Gadringer


Michael Gadringer (Senior Member, IEEE) is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Microwave and Photonic Engineering at Graz University of Technology, Austria. He received the Dipl.-Ing. and Dr. techn. degrees from Vienna University of Technology, Austria, in 2002 and 2012, respectively. In 2010, he changed to Graz University of Technology. From 2016 to 2021, Michael Gadringer held a tenure track research and teaching position at this institute. He visited Rohde & Schwarz GmbH in Munich in 2017 and Infineon Technology AG in 2018 in this context.

During his studies, he was involved in designing analog and digital linearization systems for power amplifiers and behavioral modeling of microwave circuits. His current research focuses on developing broadband microwave and mm-wave systems. Additionally, he is involved in planning and implementing complex measurements, emphasizing calibration techniques and material characterization. Michael Gadringer has authored more than 20 journals and 50 conference papers. He holds four worldwide patents and has coedited the book “RF Power Amplifier Behavioral Modeling,” published by Cambridge University Press. In 2017, he chaired “The International Workshop on Integrated Nonlinear Microwave and Millimetre-wave Circuits” (INMMiC) conference.

Michael Gadringer was a member of the IEEE 1765 standard working group on the recommended practice for estimating the Error Vector Magnitude of digitally modulated signals. In addition, he is contributing to the IEEE P2822 working group on the recommended practice for Microwave, Millimeter-wave, and THz on-wafer calibrations, deembedding, and measurements.

The IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society selected him as a 2020 IEEE TIM Outstanding Reviewer.
