Bio/Research

Ali M. Hussein (IEEE: M'80-SM'90 and Ontario PEng since 1992) received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Egypt, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Toronto in 1979, all in electrical engineering.

After completing his PhD, he worked as a Research Associate at the Electrical Engineering Division of National Research Council of Canada. From 1980 to 1982, he was an Assistant Professor at Riyadh University, Saudi Arabia. From 1982 to 1986, he was a Research Associate and a Lecturer at the Electrical Engineering Department, University of Toronto. From 1986 to 1988, he was a Member of the Scientific Staff in the Electromagnetics Technology Division, Bell-Northern Research, Ottawa, Canada. From 1988 to 1989, he was a Visiting Scientist at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of Toronto.

Since 1989, he has been with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Ryerson University (Professor since 1994) and an Adjunct Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Toronto.

Dr. Hussein has authored and co-authored about 200 publications, mainly in the areas of microwave ferrites, microwave acoustics, non-destructive evaluation of materials, numerical techniques, and, more recently, measurement, characterization and modelling of fast transients (power line microgap discharge, nuclear-generated high-altitude electromagnetic pulse, electrostatic discharge, and lightning).

Since 2008, Dr. Hussein has been a member of the Conseil International des Grands Reseaux Electriques (CIGRE) — International Council on Large Electric Systems — Working Group WG C4.407 "Lightning Parameters for Engineering Applications". He was also a member of the CIGRE Advisory Group AG C4.4 and the Working Group WG C4.4.01 on Lightning, and of the Task Force TF C4.4.04 on Lightning Location Systems (2004-2008).

In 2001, Dr. Hussein was one of the three founding members in the establishment of an International Project on "Electromagnetic Radiation from Lightning Striking Tall Structures (IPLT)," and since then he has been a member of the IPLT steering committee.
