Pavle Petrović

Personal Information 

Pavle Petrović was born in Belgrade, in 1994.

He completed his BSc and MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering, at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade, in 2018 and 2019, respectively. He enrolled in a PhD program at the same faculty, in 2019.

From 2018 to 2023 Mr. Petrović was employed in Vlatacom Institute of High Technology, in Belgrade, as a researcher specialized in radar systems. In 2023, he relocated to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, where he is currently employed with Vlatacom Technology.
His main areas of interest include applied electromagnetics, antennas and antenna array systems, and signal processing, with a focus on processing of radar signals and signals from antenna arrays. During his time in Vlatacom Institute and Vlatacom Technology, he worked on a number of both research and commercial multidisciplinary projects in the fields of cutting edge radar and communication systems. Solutions provided by the team he belonged to are in regular use in multiple countries around the world. His contributions include both hardware solutions in form of antenna systems and RF hardware, and software solutions in the form of real time signal processing algorithms and system monitoring and control software.

He has co-authored 19 journal and conference papers, and 2 technical solutions.
On two occasions, in 2020 and 2021, he was part of a team that participated in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) student design contest, in which students of graduate and post-graduate levels from around the world designed and manufactured different systems with a focus on antennas. In both cases, the team he was a part of placed in top 6 teams globally.

He is a recipient of several scholarships, grants and student awards:
– Dositeja scholarship award for gifted students, 2012;
– Scholarship from the city of Belgrade 2012;
– IEEE AP-S „C.J. Reddy“ Travel Grant 2022;
– “Blažo Mirčevski“ award for the best paper of a young author at TELFOR 2023  conference.
