在memoriam托马斯约瑟夫巴西:1952年至2018年

A pioneer in the area of microwave electronics and wireless communications, Tom Brazil’s research focused on non-linear modelling and characterization techniques at the device, circuit and system level within high-frequency electronics.  He was head of the RF & Microwave Research Group in UCD, whose research in high power amplifiers is internationally renowned, playing a significant role in the Internet of Things innovation.

Graduating with a first class honours BE in Electrical Engineering from UCD in 1973, he was awarded a PhD in 1977 by NUI.  He spent two years working on microwave sub-system development at Plessey Research (Caswell) in the UK and after a year as a lecturer in the Department of Electronic Engineering at the University of Birmingham in the UK, returned to UCD to take up a faculty post here.  A brilliant educator and mentor, he went on to become Head of Electronic Engineering in the UCD School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, inspiring generations of students who benefitted from not only his outstanding scientific knowledge but his strong sense of community and social justice.

这种社区意识使他成为更广泛的ucd社区的杰出贡献者。他曾在2001年至2014年期间担任管理当局的教授代表,任期三年,并于2012年被任命为爱尔兰国立大学的参议院议员。

Elected to the Royal Irish Academy in 2004 where he took on a number of roles, including Secretary and Chair of the Research & Education Working Group.  His copious energy and drive also led him to contribute to science policy at national and European Union level.

汤姆的研究和他的团队的研究得到了科学基金会爱尔兰,欧洲航天局和工业界的支持。他是2014年成立的主要sfi研究中心的首席研究员。

2016年,汤姆非常自豪能够在全球最大的技术专业人员协会(电气和电子工程师协会)中当选2018年微波理论和技术协会主席,该协会拥有来自世界各地的40多万名会员。他始终意识到国际合作的重要性,他将自己的角色视为国家职责,同时谦虚地承认国际荣誉。

在那个国际工程师社区中,他被称为领先的思想家和研究推动者。他是教师和导师,科学研究员和社会贡献者的全方位组合,但最重要的是,他是一个善良,温柔,善良的人,爱着丈夫,为了lia,david和tom junior而爱上了父亲。

汤姆于2018年4月13日在家中突然意外地去世。他的同事,他现在和以前的学生以及更广泛的教育界都会非常想念他。
