Raafat R. Mansour (S'84–M'86–SM'90–F'01) was born in Cairo, Egypt, on March 31, 1955. He received the B.Sc (with honors) and M.Sc. degrees from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, in 1977 and 1981, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada, in 1986, all in electrical engineering. In 1981, he was a Research Fellow with the Laboratoire d'Electromagnetisme, Institut National Polytechnique, Grenoble, France. From 1983 to 1986 he was a Research and Teaching Assistant with the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Waterloo. In 1986, he joined COM DEV Ltd., Cambridge, ON, Canada, where he held several technical and management positions with the Corporate Research and Development Department. In 1998, he received the title of a Scientist. In January 2000, he joined the University of Waterloo, as a Professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. He holds a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Industrial Research Chair in RF engineering with the University of Waterloo. He is the Founding Director of the Center for Integrated RF Engineering (CIRFE), University of Waterloo. He has authored or coauthored numerous publications in the areas of filters and multiplexers, high-temperature superconductivity and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). He is a coauthor of Microwave Filters for Communication Systems (Wiley, 2007). He holds several patents related to areas of dielectric resonator filters, superconductivity and MEMS devices. His current research interests include MEMS technology and miniature tunable RF filters for wireless and satellite applications. Dr. Mansour is a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) and a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE).
