Stephan Biber received a M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2000. During this time, his research focused on microwave technology and the application of microwave remote sensing to oceanography and climate-change monitoring. In 2005 he received a Ph.D. from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. His research from 2001 to 2005 concentrated on the development of silicon micromachined structures for millimeter and submillimeter-wave applications, including waveguide couplers, Schottky-mixers, horn antennas and quasi-optical components, such as gratings and frequency selective surfaces in the frequency range from 300-3000GHz. In 2006 he became a researcher and consultant for RF and sensor systems at Siemens Corporate Research in Germany. In the same year, he started a new position as a senior expert on antenna and receive chain system design for the Siemens Healthcare Business Unit - Magnetic Resonance Imaging. In this function he worked on near-field receive antenna arrays for magnetic resonance imaging of humans, with more than 100 antenna elements in the frequency range from 60-130MHz, low noise amplifiers and receive chain architectures. His research also includes transmit antennas, SAR modeling of multichannel transmit antenna systems and signal processing and reconstruction for parallel imaging techniques.
