I received the "laurea" degree in Electronic Engineering ("summa cum
laude") from the University of Genoa in 1990, and the Ph. D. degree in
"Models, Methods and Tools for Electronic and Electromagnetic Systems"
from the same university in 1997.
Full professor of Electromagnetic Fields
at the Department of Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications
Engineering and Naval Architecture, Polytechnic School, University
Coordinator of the Bachelor of Science Course in Electronic
Engineering and Information Technology.
In the academic year 2017-2018 I teach the following
university courses, at the University of Genoa:
Optical fibers and photonics
(Bachelor of Science Course in Electronic Engineering and
(Bachelor of Science Courses in Biomedical Engineering and in
Guiding Electromagnetic Circuits and Systems
(Master of Science Course in Electronic Engineering).
