Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) for microwave applications, design of radio frequency/microwave/millimeter-wave systems, related front-end analog electronic circuits, active and passive sensor systems, planar antennas and phased arrays, microwave filters and passive components, monopulse tracking systems and radars, and collision avoidance systems for automotive applications.
Professor Rebeiz received a B.S. in electrical engineering with distinction from the American University in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1982, and an M.S. and PhD from the California Institute of Technology in 1983 and 1988, respectively. Professor Rebeiz was the recipient of the National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award in April 1991, and the URSI International Isaac Koga Gold Medal Award in August 1993. Professor Rebeiz was selected by the students as the 1997-1998 Eta-Kappa-Nu EECS Professor of the Year. In October 1998, he received the Amoco Foundation Teaching Award, given yearly to one or two faculty at the University of Michigan, for excellence in undergraduate teaching. Professor Rebeiz is the co-recipient, with Professor Scott Barker, of the IEEE 2000 Microwave Prize. In 2003, he received the Outstanding Young Engineer Award of the IEEE MTT Society. Professor Rebeiz is a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE MTT Society on RF MEMS, and is the author of the book RF MEMS: Theory, Design and Technology, Wiley 2003. Professor Rebeiz has more than 120 Journal publications and 250 Conference publications.
