Gaetano Bellanca received his M.S. degree in 1991 and Ph.D. degree in 1995. He joined the Department of Engineering of the University of Ferrara in 1999, where he is actually a Lecturer in optical communications and antennas for the M.S. degree in electronic and telecommunication engineering. From 1991 to 1999, he was with the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informatica e Sistemistica (DEIS) of the University of Bologna. In this university, he was a Contract Professor of electromagnetic fields (1995) and an Assistant Professor of telecommunication systems (1998). In 1996, Bellanca was a Visiting Researcher at the Laboratoire de Physique de la Matière Condensée of the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, and in 2008, he was a Visiting Professor at the same laboratory, for both research and teaching activities. His research activity is mainly focused on the development of numerical techniques for electromagnetics in the fields of applied microwave and optics. He has more than 15 years of experience in developing and using different numerical methods in both frequency (BPM, FDFD, FEM) and time (FDTD) domains. He has skills in installing and managing clusters of parallel computers and in developing parallel codes using OMP and MPI paradigms.
