Katia Grenier received her Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Toulouse, France, in 2000. After a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Agere Systems (Bell Labs) in 2001, she joined the LAAS-CNRS in France and was engaged in RF MEMS circuits on silicon. From 2007 to 2009, she was with the Laboratory for Integrated Micromechatronic Systems of CNRS (LIMMS-CNRS) in the University of Tokyo, Japan, where she was engaged in launching research activities on miniature microwave-based biosensors. She is now the head of a research group at LAAS-CNRS with interests are focusing on the development of microwave-based systems for biological and medical sensing applications as well as for evaluating electromagnetic waves effects on the living.
Dr. Grenier is a member of the TC-28 of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society and of the European Microwave Association. She serves as Program Committee member of several conferences and chaired the IEEE BioWireleSS 2015 & 2016, the IEEE International Microwave Bio Conference 2020. She is also involved in Women in Microwave events’ organization.
