Radiation Laboratory of the University of Michigan where he studied electromagnetic theory
and computational electromagnetics. He earned a M.S.E.E. in 1990 and a Ph.D. in 1994. After
a brief Post-Doctoral research experience at UM, he joind Mission Research Corporation in
Valparaiso, FL. Dr. Kempel led several funded research efforts in the general areas of computational
electromagnetics, antenna design, scattering analysis, and high power/ultrawideband microwaves.
During this time, Dr. Kempel co-authored a textbook on the use of finite element methods in
electromagnetics. In August 1998, Dr. Kempel joined Michigan State University.
