Takeshi Fukusako (Senior Member, IEEE) received the B.E., M.E., and Ph.D. degrees in Engineering from Kyoto Institute of Technology, Kyoto, Japan, in 1992, 1994, and 1997, respectively. In 1997, he joined the Kumamoto University, Kumamoto, Japan, as a Research Associate. He is currently working with the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Kumamoto University, as a Professor since 2016. From 2005 to 2006, he was a Visiting Researcher at the University of Manitoba, MN, Canada. Furthermore, he was a Visiting Associate Professor of the City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR, China, in 2015. His current research interests are mainly design techniques of broadband antennas, circularly polarized antennas, and electrically small antennas and their applications. For the studies, he has accepted many international students and researchers from various countries from such as Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Mongolia, and so on. In academic services, he served IEICE Transactions on Communications as an Associate Editor from 2012 to 2016. He is currently an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Antennas Propagation since 2015. In 2014, he served as one of the TPC co-chairs at the 2014 IEEE International Workshop on Electromagnetics: Applications and Student Innovation Competition (iWEM2014). In 2017, he served as one of the general chairs of the IEEE International Conference on Computational Electromagnetics (ICCEM2017). In addition to these conferences, he worked as TPC members in many international conferences. He is also an Administrative Committee (AdCom) Member of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) from 2019 to 2021. Related to his activities, he received the Distinguished Service Award from IEICE Communications Society in 2016, Outstanding Associate Editor from IEEE AP-S in 2017, and the Director-General Award of Kyushu Telecommunication Bureau, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) of Japan in 2016, etc. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and also a Senior Member of IEIC
