About David C. Jiles

David C. Jiles began his appointment as the Palmer Endowed Department Chair in Electrical and Computer Engineering on October 1, 2010. Prior to that, Jiles was the director of the Wolfson Centre for Magnetics and a professor of magnetics at Cardiff University in the United Kingdom. He also formerly was an Anson Marston Distinguished Professor of Engineering at Iowa State—a rank he has resumed—and held a joint appointment with the ECpE and materials science and engineering departments. He maintained his ties with the college as a collaborating professor and with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory as a research associate during his time at Cardiff from 2005 to 2010.
Jiles’ research interests include nonlinear and hysteretic behavior of magnetic materials; magnetoelasticity, magnetostriction, and magnetomechanical effects; development of novel magnetic materials; and applications of magnetic measurements to nondestructive evaluation. He has authored more than 500 scientific papers, has published three books, and holds 19 patents. He has served as editor-in-chief of IEEE Transactions on Magnetics since 2005. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Magnetics Society, Institution of Electrical Engineers, Institute of Physics, Institute of Materials, and Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
