Biographie (fonctions, responsabilités...)

Philippe Besnier  received the diplôme d'ingénieur degree in electronics from école universitaire d'ingénieurs de Lille (EUDIL), Lille, France, in 1990 and the Ph. D. degree in electronics from the university of Lille in 1993. Following a one-year period at ONERA, Meudon as an assistant scientist in the EMC division, he was with the laboratory of radio-propagation and electronics (LRPE), university of Lille, as a researcher (chargé de recherche) at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) from 1994 to 1997. From 1997 to 2002, Philippe Besnier was the director of Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches en Protection Electromagnétique (CERPEM): a not-for-profit organization for research, expertise and training in EMC and related activities, based in Laval, France. He also co-founded and headed TEKCEM in 1998, a small business company specialized in turn-key systems for EMC measurements. Back to CNRS in 2002, he has been since then with the Institut d’Electronique et des Technologies du numéRique (IETR) - -, Rennes, France. Philippe Besnier was appointed as CNRS senior researcher (directeur de recherche au CNRS) in 2013. He was co-head of the “antennas and microwave devices” research department of the IETR between 2012 and 2016. He headed the WAVES (now eWAVES) team - electromagnetic waves in complex media - during the first semester of 2017. Since July 2017, he is deputy director of the IETR. His research activities deal with interference analysis on cable harnesses (including electromagnetic topology), theory and application of reverberation chambers, shielding and absorbing techniques, quantification and propagation of uncertainties in EMC modeling and electromagnetic cybersecurity.
