Dr. Romanofsky received the B.S.E.E. from the Pennsylvania State University, the M.S.E.E. from the University of Toledo and his Doctorate in Electrical Engineering from Cleveland State University. In 1990-1991 he served as Program Manager for Superconductivity and RF Communi­cations at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and subsequently served a three month collateral assignment with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. He is currently a member of the Antenna, Microwave and Optical Systems Branch at the NASA Glenn Research Center and has over 75 publications in the fields of microwave device technology, high-temperature superconductivity, and microwave applications of thin ferroelectric films. He has authored book chapters in Low-Temperature Electronics-Physics, Devices, Circuits and Applications (2000) and the 4th edition of the Antenna Engineering Handbook (2007). He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, holds five patents, and is a recipient of NASA’s Exceptional Service Medal and the Federal Executive Board “Wings of Excellence” award. In addition, he is an Adjunct Professor at the Cleveland State University. Current research interests include cryogenic microwave electronics, thin film ferroelectric technology, phased array antennas, and large deployable reflectors. Dr. Romanofsky is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a member of the NASA Glenn Research Advisory Board.
