Kent Chamberlin

Kent Chamberlin received his Ph.D. from Ohio University, specializing in computational electromagnetics. His research has been devoted to modeling radio wave propagation including interfering radiation from computing devices and wave phenomena in the human body.
Dr. Kent Chamberlin is the Chair and a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. In his more than thirty-five years in academia, he has performed research for more than twenty sponsors, including the National Science Foundation. He has received two Fulbright awards, including the prestigious Fulbright Distinguished Chair, which he served in Aveiro, Portugal. He has also served as an Associate Editor for the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and he continues to be active in performing and publishing in a range of research areas.
Dr. Chamberlin has been passionate about his teaching during his career and has received numerous teaching awards. He has experience with international higher education which has included one-semester of teaching in India. He directed and developed UNH’s first internet-based online learning program in 1998 and he has been active in online learning ever since. He was appointed by the Governor to the State’s Distance Learning Commission and he currently serves on the State's HB522 Commission which is exploring the health impacts associated with the rollout of 5G networks. Dr. Chamberlin is the Vice-Chair of the Virtual Learning Academy Charter School (VLACS).
