AP/COM/MTT Student Chapter Leuven


Jan 2023 – The AP/COM/MTT (IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Microwave Theory and Technology Society) Student Chapter Leuven is officially formed!

The AP/COM/MTT Student Chapter Leuven aims to inform students and young professionals about scientific research and progress in all fields of electromagnetics and communications. The chapter also hopes to familiarize students with the IEEE activities held by the corresponding societies, inspiring and encouraging them to pursue a career as an Electrical and Electronics Engineer. To that purpose, future activities include, but are not limited to webinars, company visits, symposia and conferences.

Our Team

Maede Chavoshi – Chair

She received B.Sc. (2016) in electrical engineering (communications) from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, and her M.Sc. (2019) in electrical engineering (micro and nano-electronic devices) from the University of Tehran, Iran.
Currently, she is a Ph.D. student working on microwave biosensors for cancer detection at the department of electrical engineering, KU Leuven, Belgium. Her primary research interest is microwave dielectric spectroscopy and heating for life science applications focusing on cell studies.

Matko Martinic – Vice chair

He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering and information technology from the University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia, in 2018 and 2020, respectively. He is currently pursuing Ph.D. degree at KU Leuven with focus on microwave heating in flow chemistry, dielectric modeling, and microwaves for life science applications.

Marie Mertens – Publicity

Marie obtained her bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the KU Leuven Engineering Sciences Faculty in 2019. In the first year of her master’s in Biomedical Engineering, she studied in KTH in Stockholm for one year with the Erasmus exchange program. She completed the second year at KU Leuven (2021, magna cum laude). She is now pursuing the degree of PhD in a collaboration between KU Leuven (BE) and Polytechnique Montréal (CA). She aims to electromagnetically characterize and model artificial tissues in a broadband frequency range.
