He received the degree (summa cum laude) in electronic engineering from the University of Rome “Sapienza,” Rome, Italy, in 1984. In 1986 he was appointed as Researcher at the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Rome “Tor Vergata,” Italy. He joined the Engineering Department at Lancaster University, U.K., as Professor of electronics in 2012.
He has conducted researches in different fields, such as microstrip microwave circuits, beam-forming network for active-phased array, traveling-wave amplifiers, ultra wideband matrix amplifiers, and MMIC yield evaluation.
He is author of more than 145 articles in peer-reviewed international journals and conference proceedings and one patent. He was Local Organization Chair of the International Vacuum Electronics Conference 2009 (IVEC 2009) in Rome. He was Conference Chair of the 6th UK, Europe, China Millimeter Waves and Terahertz Technology Workshop (UCMMT 2013) held in Rome on September 2013. He is in the Editorial Review Board of the IEEE Trans. of THz Science and Technology.
He is member of the IEEE EDS Vacuum Electronics Technical Committee. He was in the coordinating team of FP7 OPTHER (Optically driven THz amplifier) project. His present research interests include THz vacuum tubes, analytical methods for slow wave structures, millimeter wave klystrons, backward wave oscillators and millimeter wave particle accelerators.
He leads the (Engineering of Microwave, Terahertz and Light) group at Lancaster University.
