Curriculum Vitae:

Michal Aftanas was born in Stara Lubovna in Slovak Republic, in 1983. He finished Electrotechnical High School in Presov, in 2001. He received his Ing. (M.Sc.) degree in telecomunications from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Kosice, in 2006. He received his Philosophiae Doctor. (PhD.) degree in telecomunications and infoelectronics from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Kosice, in 2009.

During PhD study he participates in the Radiotect project "Ultra Wideband Radio Application for localization of hidden people and detection of unauthorized objects" coordinated by Technical University of Ilmenau, Germany. He was mostly working on issues of imaging of the objects behind the walls with through the wall UWB radar system with special concentration on measurement of wall parameters and compensation the effect of wall on electromagnetic wave. During PhD and Master study he was supervised by Assoc. Prof. Milos Drutarovsky, Ph.D.

From 2009, he worked for CMMS (Condition Monitoring & Maintenance Systems) in Prague as a developer of signal processing algorithms for DSP (Digital Signal Processor).
From 2010, he worked for Computer Associates as Software Engineer - Assembler developer for Mainframes.
From 2012, he is working for Siemens Prague, Czech Republic as Hardware Designer of embedded systems and Safety Manager.
