Dr Nicolas Mora
Electromagnetic Effects Director
Dr Nicolas Mora is responsible for the Electromagnetic Effects induced by high-power electromagnetics technologies and for leveraging pulsed power technologies in electromagnetic propulsion systems, from fundamental physics and theoretical problems to experimental physics.
Dr Mora received a B. S. degree in Electronics Engineering in 2007 and an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering with a major in High Voltage Engineering in 2009, both from the National University of Colombia. He started his career in the EMC Research Group of the National University of Colombia in 2007, and in 2009 he moved to the EMC Lab at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Switzerland. He earned his Ph. D degree in Electrical Engineering from EPFL in 2016. From 2015 to 2019 he worked as an R & D Engineer for Montena technology.
In 2011, he received the Frank Gunther Award of the Radio Club of America and the Young Scientist Award from URSI. From 2013-2016, Nicolas was the president of the Colombian Association of Researchers in Switzerland. In 2015 he received the Young Scientist Award from the Summa Foundation. He was appointed as a Distinguished Reviewer of the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility in 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019. He was the chair of the joint EMC / AP / MTT chapter of IEEE in Switzerland between 2016 and 2019. In 2016, he received the Best Paper Award from the EMC Europe 2016 Wroclaw Symposium. In 2018, he received the HPEM Fellow award from the Summa Foundation, and in 2019 the Motohisa Kanda Most Cited IEEE Transactions in EMC Paper Award.
