Personal profile

Research interests

Symon's research experience includes modeling the radar cross-section of military vessels for high frequency surface-wave radar, professional software design and implementation for measurements in anechoic chambers, design of compact multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antennas for wideband military communications, and the research and development of highly compact circularly polarized antennas for microsatellites.


Symon K. Podilchak was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and received a B.A.Sc. degree in 2005 from the Engineering Science Program at theUniversity of Toronto. While studying at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, he received a M.A.Sc and a Ph.D. degree (Electrical Engineering) in 2008 and 2013, respectively. From 2013 to 2015 Symon was an Assistant Professor at Queen's in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as well as a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Research Fellow. He is also a registered Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) in the Province of Ontario and the founding chairman for the IEEE AP-S/MTT-S joint chapter in Kingston. Symon joined Heriot-Watt University as an Assistant Professor in July 2015.
