Igor Tsukerman is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Akron, Ohio, where he has been a faculty member since 1995. His research is focused on the simulation of nanoscale systems, applied electromagnetics and photonics, plasmonics, computational methods, and nonlocal homogenization of materials. He teaches a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses (Signals & Systems, Circuits, Electromagnetic Fields, Digital Signal Processing, Random Signal Analysis, Simulation of Nanoscale Systems, and others). Tsukerman has approximately 150 refereed publications, has authored a monograph (Computational Methods for Nanoscale Applications: Particles, Plasmons and Waves
, Springer 2008) and co-edited a book (Plasmonics and Plasmonic Metamaterials: Analysis and Applications
, World Scientific, 2011).
Before coming to the University of Akron, Tsukerman worked at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, the University of Toronto (1990-1995). A joint project with GE Canada involved electromagnetic field analysis and noise reduction in large electric motors.
Tsukerman's academic degrees are from St. Petersburg Polytechnic in Russia: a combined B.Sc. / M.Sc. degree (with honors) in Control Systems (1982) and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (1988).
