Biography

Dr. Markley received his B.A.Sc. with First Class Honours from the School of Engineering at Simon Fraser University in 2004.  He moved to the University of Toronto to pursue graduate studies in the Electromagnetics Group and received his M.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering in 2007 and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2013.  After a brief Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Toronto, he accepted a faculty position in Kelowna and joined the School of Engineering as Assistant Professor on July 1st, 2013.

Dr. Markley was the recipient of an NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarship at the Masters level and at the Doctoral level, as well as an NSERC Postgraduate Fellowship.  Among other awards, he received two IEEE MTT Graduate Fellowships and the 2009 IEEE MTT-S Tatsuo Itoh Best Paper Award for the best paper published in IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters.

Dr. Markley is interested in electromagnetics research in a range of fundamental and applied topics from near-field focusing and imaging to microwave circuits and antennas to wave propagation and field manipulation.  In particular, he is very interested in the study of metamaterials—artificial materials with exotic electric and magnetic properties—and how they can be applied to antenna design and microwave engineering.
