Felipe Iza received the B.S. degree in engineering from the University of Navarra, San Sebastian (Spain), in 1997, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Northeastern University, Boston MA (USA), in 2001 and 2004, respectively.

From 1997 to 1999, he was with the Centro de Estudios e Investigaciones Tecnicas de Guipuzcoa, San Sebastian (Spain). From 2004 to 2006, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow with Pohang University of Science and Technology, Pohang (Korea), where he became a Research Professor in 2006. Since 2007, he has been with the School of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering, Loughborough University, Leicestershire, U.K., where he is a Senior Lecturer in Bioelectrics and Health Care. He has served as acting Associate Dean for Research and he is currently Director of Postgradaute Research.

His research interest is focused on experimental and computational low-temperature plasma physics and engineering, with special attention to microplasmas and atmospheric discharges for biomedical and environmental applications.

Dr. Iza is a Fulbright alumnus, a member of Coalition for Plasma Science, the American Vacuum Society (AVS), the Institute of Physics (IoP) and a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He has served as Program Committee Member (Division of Plasma Science and Technology) of AVS’09 and the UK Technological Plasma Workshops TPW'08-'14, as treasurer and local organising committee chair of ICOPS 2012, as local organising committee member of the UK Pulsed Power Symposium 2014 and he serves in the programme committee of the 27th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology (Prague 2016) and the management committee member of the European COST action TD1208.
