Research expertise
Antennas and RF systems for wireless communications, modeling of complex electromagnetic phenomena

James T. Aberle received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of New York (now Polytechnic University) in 1982 and 1985, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Massachusetts in 1989. From 1982 to 1985, he was employed by Hazeltine Corporation, Greenlawn, NY, where he worked on the development of wide-band phased array antennas. As a graduate research assistant at the University of Massachusetts from 1985 to 1989, Aberle developed and validated computer models for printed antennas. He has been a faculty member at Arizona State University since 1989, and is currently an associate professor of electrical engineering. His research interests include the design of radio frequency systems for wireless applications as well as the modeling of complex electromagnetic phenomena. In addition to his position as a faculty member at ASU, Professor Aberle has been a NASA/ASEE summer faculty fellow at NASA Langley Research Center (1993), a visiting academic at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (1997), a visiting researcher at Atlantic Aerospace Electronics Corp. in Greenbelt, MD (1998), and a senior member of the technical staff at a start-up company (2000-2002).
