Additional Information

Jasmin Smajic was born in Tuzla (Bosnia and Herzegovina) in 1971. He received his B.Sc. degree from Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Tuzla in 1996. His M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree he received from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing in Zagreb (Croatia) in 1998 and 2001, respectively. The main topic of his M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies was numerical computing of static and time-varying electromagnetic fields in nonlinear materials. 

From 2002 to 2004 he was a postdoctoral research fellow in Computational Optics group of Laboratory for Electromagnetic Fields and Microwave Electronics at ETH Zurich (Switzerland). The main topics of his post-doctoral studies were full-Maxwell electromagnetic simulations of photonic crystals and similar electromagnetic meta-materials.

In 2004 he took a position of scientist at ABB Corporate Research Centre in Baden-Dättwil (Switzerland) where he stayed until 2011. His work in ABB covered a wide range of projects in the field of computational and applied electromagnetics such as LI-modeling and simulation of transformer windings, fast electromagnetic transients in power- and distribution transformers, very fast electromagnetic transients in gas insulated switchgears, and coupled electromagnetic-mechanical and electromagnetic-thermal analysis of transformers and circuit breakers.

Since 2011 he is a professor of electrical engineering at University of Applied Sciences of Eastern Switzerland (HSR) where he is presently leading Computational and Applied Electromagnetics Group.

Since 2007 he is a lecturer at ETH teaching several subjects in the area of computational and applied electromagnetics.

Jasmin Smajic is a member of CIGRE and IEEE and he has authored over hundred scientific publications and dozens of patents.
