Interview of Victor Granatstein, who was selected by PRESANS and earned 12 000 € for writing a review on microwaves!PRESANS was recently chosen by a company in the Defense sector to identify an expert in the world able to write a review on high-power microwaves.

PRESANS, has developed a novel approach, leveraging a proprietary Expert Search Engine, to find experts.

Victor Granatstein, professor at the University of Maryland (USA) was identified by PRESANS and earned 12 000€ for writing a 40 page report on this topic he knows perfectly.

Victor is glad to share his experience of PRESANS with us:

Could you please tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Maryland where I have been leading research on high power microwave sources and applications. One area of study was effects of high power microwaves on integrated electronics.

 How did you hear about PRESANS?

I was contacted by Dr. Albert Meige who made me aware of the PRESANS challenge.

Why did you accept to contribute as an Expert?

I was happy to accept the PRESANS challenge since it gave me the motivation to summarize a broad area of research in which I had been involved for many years.

Did you feel “safe” during the process?

I felt safe because of Dr. Meige’s association with Ecole Polytechnique.

Will you participate again?

I would participate again if there was another good match between a PRESANS challenge topic and my research interests. I would encourage other researchers to become PRESANS experts.
