Short CV: Joachim Oberhammer, born in Italy in 1976; M.Sc. EE from Graz University of Technology, Austria, in 2000; Ph.D. from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2004. Post-doctoral research fellow at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2004, and at Kyoto University, Japan, in 2008. Since 2005 leading radio-frequency/microwave/terahertz micro-electromechanical systems research at KTH; Associate Professor at KTH in 2010; Professor in Microwave and THz Microsystems at KTH since 2015. Guest researcher at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2007; guest researcher at NASA-Jet Propulsion Laboratory, USA, in 2014; guest professor "Chair of Excellence" at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in 2019-2020.

He is author and co-author of more than 200 reviewed research papers and holds 4 patents. In 2004, 2007, and 2008 he got an award by the Ericsson Research Foundation, a grant by the Swedish Innovation Bridge, and a scholarship by the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science, respectively. The research work he is heading received 8 Best Paper Awards (6 of which at IEEE conferences), four IEEE Graduate Fellowship Awards (by MTT-S and by AP-S), and the 2023 Young Engineer Award of the European Microwave Association. He served as TPRC member of IEEE Transducers (2009, 2015, 2019), IEEE International Microwave Symposiums (since 2010), IEEE Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (2011, 2012), IEEE Radio and Wireless Week (2015, 2016), EuMCE (2019), EuMW (since 2022). Dr Oberhammer is Steering Group member of the IEEE MTT-S and AP-S Chapers Sweden since 2009. In 2013, he received an ERC Consolidator Grant by the European Research Council. Steering Group Member of the Young Academy of Sweden 2014-2016. Representative of Sweden/Norway/Iceland in the European Microwave Association 2016-2018. Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology 2019-2021. PI of two SEK 35-million SSF framework grants on electronics (2014-2020; 2021-2025). Scientific coordinator of the EU RIA projects M3TERA and Car2TERA (both H2020).
