Studies
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.

Current position
Full professor of Electromagnetic Fields at the Department of Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications Engineering and Naval Architecture, Polytechnic School, University of Genoa.

Teaching activities
In the academic year 2016-2017 I teach the following university courses, at the University of Genoa: Optical fibers and photonics (Bachelor program in Information Technology and Electronic Engineering), Electromagnetic fields (Bachelor programs in Biomedical Engineering and in Computer Engineering) and Guiding Electromagnetic Circuits and Systems (Master program in Electronic Engineering).

Research interests and related activities
My main research interests are in electromagnetic theory, electromagnetic modelling and computational electromagnetics.

Recent manuscripts
Some of my more recent papers are:
  • Reliable models for time-harmonic electromagnetic boundary value problems involving bianisotropic materials or rotating axisymmetric objects and their finite element approximations, in preparation (with M. Brignone and P. Kalarickel Ramakrishnan),
  • Accuracy of finite element approximations for two-dimensional time-harmonic electromagnetic boundary value problems involving non-conducting moving objects with stationary boundaries, in preparation (with P. Kalarickel Ramakrishnan)
  • Two-dimensional Green's function for scattering and radiation problems in elliptically-layered media with PEC cores, submitted to IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation (with M. Pastorino and A. Randazzo)

Awards
The paper "Existence, uniqueness and finite element approximation of the solution of time-harmonic electromagnetic boundary value problems involving metamaterials", published in COMPEL, has been awarded as the Outstanding Paper for the year 2005.

Expected open positions
One Ph. D. position in electromagnetic modelling and computational electromagnetics; beginning on November 1, 2018.
