Academic merits: Docent in Engineering Science with Specialization in Microwave Technology
Dr. Dancila graduated magna cum laude as an Electrical Engineer from Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in 2006 and received a Ph.D. degree in Applied Sciences in 2011 from UCL, in collaboration with IMEC. He received also a Complementary Master in Business Management, from the Solvay Business School, Brussels. He is author or co-author of more than 50 publications including journals and conferences. He received the best measurement paper award at EUCAP 2013, when he was involved with Vinnova project: Skin cancer diagnostic tool based on micromachined interface for high-resolution THz spectroscopy (MTSSC). He has been granted the WIPO patent: A microfabricated sensor and a method of detecting a component in bodily fluid, in the field of microwave sensors for biomedical applications. He translated into French two reference books in the field of microelectronics (Fundamentals of electric circuits by Alexander and Microelectronic Circuits by Sedra) and is presently teaching Electronics and Analogue electronics courses to clases of about hundred students, in Civ. Engineering education. His research interests are in the areas of milimeterwave and terahertz adaptive and integrated antennas, RF-MEMS technology and RF sensors for biomedical applications, such as: skin cancer detection and glucose monitoring. Docent in June 2018 and Associate Professor in March 2019. Since 2017, visiting Professor at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador where he is teaching the course "Electrónica de Alta Frecuencia" at the International post graduade Master of Nanoelectronics. PI of H2020 Eurostars project: "Energy Efficient PET Cancer Diagnostics: Novel RF Source for Radioisotope Production - ENEFRF". Project Leader of Vinnova projects: “Development of an advanced millimetre-wave front-end circuitry for use in medical sensing”, Vinnova, 2016-2018, “60 GHz beam-steering solution with phased array systems”; Vinnova, 2018-2021, “5G mmWave RFIC with Antenna In Package for CPE Applications” . SSF project: MEMS terahertz systems. Researcher at FREIA laboratory on solid-state power amplifiers.
The Microwave Group (MG) at the Department of Engineering Sciences, Uppsala University, Sweden has a broad expertise in wireless sensors, monolithic and hybrid antenna integration, antenna arrays and high power RF and microwave amplifiers. The MG is presently involved with: (i) Eurostars project ENEFRF (Dancila as Principal Investigator). The investigation in this project is related to the increase in power of RF sources using solid-state amplifiers for particle accelerators. This is highly complementary to the present application. Other ongoing projects in the group are: (ii) “MEMS THz systems – a new concept for enabling the large-scale industrial exploitation of the terahertz spectrum” and (iii) “60GHz RF beam-steering solution including phased array antenna for Small Cell Wireless Backhaul and wireless access points”. The MG presently hosts 3 PhD students and 2 researchers in addtion of some other 15 physicists and engineers working on particle accelerator related research topics at the FREIA laboratory.
