Biography

Nikola Boskovic was born on 6.6.1986. in Pozega, Serbia, where he finished primary and high school. From 2005 to 2010, he studied microwave technique at the Department for Telecommunications at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade, and in 2010 he graduated with an average grade of 81.10%. His Bachelor thesis was on the subject “Sources of electromagnetic radiation in electronics”. In 2011, he finished Master studies at the same University, with an average grade of 95.70%. His master thesis was on the subject “Modelling of multi-layer microwave filters using WIPL-D AW modeler”. In November, 2014, he started PhD studies in Telecommunications at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, University of Nis.

In the period from November 2011 to July 2012 he worked at the IMTEL-communications Ltd. Since August 2012 he is working at the Institute of Physics as a Research Assistant on III-045016 project named “Generation and characterization of nanophotonic functional structures in biomedicine and informatics” and TR-32052 project named “Wireless communication system with enhanced performances in microwave and millimeter wave frequency range”, which are funded by the Serbian Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development.

His primary research topic is related to: the research and development of frequency scanning antenna arrays with phase shifters based on metamaterials, and analysis and design of various passive shifters using split ring resonators; namely two of these shifters were implemented into scanning antenna arrays which were fabricated and tested. Moreover, he research new structures of radiation elements with a large impedance range.

He is the first author of several papers, of which one is in M21 paper category and one is in M24 paper category. He was awarded two times for the best student paper at the conferences ETRAN 2013 and ETRAN 2015.
