Professor Buris received the diploma in Electrical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in 1982 and a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC.  In 1987 he joined the faculty of the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Massachusetts at Amherst.  The summer of 1990 he was a summer faculty with NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA.  In 1992, he joined Motorola where he worked till 2009.  Prior to Motorola he worked on interesting and challenging projects such as underground object detection, non destructive evaluation of ion implanted thin ferrite films, ferrite devices, phased arrays on ferrites, phase conjugation techniques for the correction of distorted large space reflector antennas, broadband phased arrays and plasma ionization sensors.  His work at Motorola spanned several areas of wireless technology.  Notable contributions by prof. Buris and his team include antenna and RF circuit design methodologies and tools.  Some of their design ideas on multidisciplinary and cross-layer optimization can be found inside several successful products.  His most recent activities have focused on Smart Antenna Systems and Algorithms for the new generation communication systems.


Professor Buris is an IEEE fellow and was elected twice a distinguished lecturer of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.
