Vincent G. Harris received the B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. (1990) degrees in engineering from Northeastern University. He has also received the M.Sc. degree in engineering management from the University of Maryland (1995), and the M.Sc. degree in executive technology management from the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania (2003). He is presently the William Lincoln Smith Chair Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Northeastern University. Dr. Harris was a member of the technical staff at the Naval Research Laboratory (1990-2003). During his time at NRL he served as the head of the Complex Materials Section and the head of the Materials Physics Branch. In 2001 he established and assumed the position of director of the NRL Synchrotron Radiation Consortium (2001-2003). In 2004 he established the Center for Microwave and Magnetic Materials and Integrated Circuits, and continues to serve as its first director. The mission of this center is to develop high frequency materials and device solutions for next-generation radar and wireless communication electronics. His research interests include materials design and the study of processing, structure, and magnetism in a wide range of materials. He has pioneered the use of synchrotron radiation techniques to relate the short range chemical and structural properties of materials to magnetism. He has published more than 170 technical articles, including book chapters and review articles on the topical areas of nanotechnology, magnetism, and magnetic materials. In addition, he holds nine patents and patent applications, and has presented more than 150 papers at national and international meetings. Dr. Harris is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and Senior Member of the IEEE.
