John N. Sahalos was born in Philippiada, Greece, in November 1943. He received his B.Sc. degree in Physics, in 1967 and his Ph.D degree in Physics, in 1974, from the University of Thessaloniki, (AUTh), Thessaloniki, Greece. Except of his PhD, during 1970-75, he studied in the School of Engineering of AUTh and he received his Diploma (BCE+MCE) in civil engineering, (1975). During 1972-74, he also studied in the Electronic Physics Department of AUTh and he received his professional Diploma of postgraduate studies in Radio-Electrology, (1975).

Prof. Sahalos is the director of the RadioCommunications Laboratory (RCL) since 1986. From 1971 to 1974, he was a Teaching Assistant of Physics and from 1974 to 1976, he was an Instructor at AUTh. During 1976, he worked at the ElectroScience Laboratory, the Ohio State University, Columbus, as a Postdoctoral University Fellow. From 1977 to 1985, he was a Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department, University of Thrace, Greece, and Director of the Microwaves Laboratory. During 1982, he was a visiting Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Colorado, Boulder. From 1985 to 2010, he was a Professor at the School of Science, AUTh, while since 2010 he is a Professor Emeritus at the same school. From 1989 to 2010 he was  the director of the Postgraduate Studies in Electronic Physics.  During 1989, he was a visiting Professor at the Technical University of Madrid, Spain. Since 2010 he is a Professor at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Nicosia, (UNic), Cyprus.

He is the author of four books, seven book chapters and more than 350 articles published in the scientific literature. He has supervised 25 PhDs and more than 100 master theses. His research interests are in the areas of Antennas Analysis & Design, Electromagnetic Fields Measurements, Electromagnetic Diffraction, Numerical Methods (FEM, FDTD, MoM), Microwave Engineering, Radio-Communications, Sensor Networks & RFID Systems, EMC and Biomedical Engineering

Prof. Sahalos is an IEEE Life Fellow. He is also a Member of the Academy of Science of New York. He is a Professional Engineer and a Consultant to industry.  He has been honored with a special investigation fellowship of the Ministerio de Education Y Siencia, Spain.  He is a member of eight IEEE societies and Associate Editor in three international journals. Since 1992, he has been a member of commissions A and E of URSI and since 1999, he is the president of the Greek committees of URSI.
