Nutapong Somjit received the Dipl.-Ing. (MSc) degree from Dresden University of Technology in 2005 and the PhD degree from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in 2012. Then, he returned to TU Dresden to lead a research team in micro-sensors and MEMS ICs for the Chair for Circuit Design and Network Theory. In 2013, he was appointed Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Leeds, where he is currently an Associate Professor. From 2022, he was appointed to lead a research team as an adjunct faculty member in Micro and Nanosystems Department, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. His main research focuses on integrated smart high-frequency components, sustainable micro and nanosystems as well as low-cost microfabrication processes.

Dr Somjit was the recipient of the Best Paper Award (EuMIC prize) at the European Microwave Week in 2009. He was awarded a Graduate Fellowship from the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) in 2010 and 2011, and the IEEE Doctoral Research Award from the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society in 2012. He was appointed a member of the Engineering, Physical and Space Science Research Panel of the British Council in 2014. In 2016, he was the Chair of the Student Design Competition for the European Microwave Week and, in 2018, he was appointed an Associate Editor of IET Electronics Letters.
