Jasmin Smajic received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing in Zagreb, Croatia in 1998 and 2001, respectively. The main topic of his M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies was numerical computing of static and time-varying electromagnetic fields in power transformers and electrical machines, as well as their design optimization.
From 2002 to 2004 he was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Computational Optics group of the Laboratory for Electromagnetic Fields and Microwave Electronics at the ETH Zurich, Switzerland. The main topics of his post-doctoral studies were full-Maxwell electromagnetic simulations of photonic crystals and similar electromagnetic meta-materials.
In 2004 he took a position as a scientist at the ABB Corporate Research Centre in Baden-Dättwil, Switzerland where he stayed until 2011. His work in ABB covered a wide range of projects in the field of computational and applied electromagnetics such as LI-modeling and simulation of transformer windings, fast electromagnetic transients in power- and distribution transformers, coupled electromagnetic-mechanical and electromagnetic-thermal analysis of transformers and circuit breakers, and very fast electromagnetic transients in gas insulated switchgears.
From 2007 to 2020 he was an external lecturer at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) teaching several courses on computational electromagnetics and physical modeling at Master and PhD level.
From 2011 to 2020 he was a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Rapperswil, Switzerland and led the university’s Computational and Applied Electromagnetics Group (CAEM).
Since 2020 he has been a lecturer and senior scientist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. He currently leads the theoretical and simulation related research activities at the Institute of Electromagnetic Fields (IEF).
Jasmin Smajic is a member of CIGRE and IEEE and he has authored over a hundred scientific publications and dozens of patents.
