Daniel Arnitz is a PostDoc at the University of Washington (WA, USA), working on RF system design for short-range imaging systems, backscatter channel modeling and prediction, MIMO wireless power transfer, and RFID localization. He received his Master degree Dipl.-Ing.(FH) in electrical engineering from the University of Applied Sciences FH Joanneum Kapfenberg, Austria, in 2005, and a Ph.D. (Dr. techn.) degree from Graz University of Technology, Austria, in 2011 (both degrees with honors).
In 2012 he joined Prof. Matt Reynolds' group, first at Duke University (NC, USA) and later at the University of Washington (WA, USA). Daniel is author and maintainer of the PARIS Simulation Framework, an open-source simulation engine intended for research on (ultra-)wideband backscatter and RFID systems. Daniel reviews for multiple conferences and journals, and held several Chair positions at the IEEE RFID series of conferences, most recently TPC Chair in 2012 and 2013, TPC Co-Chair in 2014 and 2015, and General Chair in 2016.
