Areas of Interest

John Bandler, OC, pioneered optimization technologies for engineering modeling and design, including modeling and electromagnetics-based design optimization of devices, circuits and systems in the radio-frequency, wireless, and microwave arenas. He pioneered space mapping technology in 1993. Space mapping has since been adopted into design portfolios across the entire spectrum of engineering. It enables optimal, high-fidelity design of devices and systems at a cost of only a few high-fidelity simulations. It offers an explanation for the engineer's traditional "feel" for a problem; it is in accord with everyday experience and with modern thinking in human evolution, cognition, and neuroscience.
