Donald Wilton

Emeritus Professor Donald Wilton in the UH Cullen College of Engineering was elected to the 2021 class of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) for contributions to computational electromagnetics of highly complex structures.

Wilton's primary research interest is on the application of mathematical and numerical methods for solutions of antenna, guided wave and electromagnetic scattering problems. Regarded as one of the leading authorities in the field of computational electromagnetics, he is perhaps best known for establishing a framework for using computer modeling to study electromagnetic scattering by irregular surfaces, such as the curved wing of an airplane.
