Rami Kishek

Kishek, Rami A.

Research Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
1202G Energy Research Facility

Research Interests: 

Professor Kishek's research interests revolve on the electrodynamics of swarms of particles interacting through long range forces. Such collective interactions underlie many problems in modern physics, from laboratory plasmas to galactic dynamics.  He is heavily involved in the development of the University of Maryland Electron Ring (UMER).


Professori Kishek attended the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, where he received the B.S.E. in electrical engineering (1993), M.S.E. in nuclear engineering (1995), and Ph.D. in nuclear engineering (1997). He joined the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics in 1997.

Honors and Awards: 

Professor Kishek is a senior member in the IEEE and was elected a fellow of the American Physical Society, Division of Physics of Beams, in 2013.   He is the recipient of the U.S. Particle Accelerator School (USPAS) Prize for Achievement in Accelerator Science and Technology (2015).
