Maurizio Bozzi was born in Voghera, Italy in 1971. He received the M.S. degree in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in electronics and computer science from the University of Pavia, Italy, in 1996 and 2000, respectively. In 2002, he became an Assistant Professor of electromagnetics at the Department of Electronics, University of Pavia, and since 2005, he has been an Adjunct Professor. He currently teaches the courses of “Antennas” and of “Numerical techniques for electromagnetics” in the graduate course of electrical engineering at the University of Pavia. He held research positions in various universities worldwide, including the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt, Germany, the Universitat de Valencia, Spain, Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, Canada, the CTTC, Spain, and the Faculty of Sciences of Tunis, Tunisia. His main research activities focus on the development of numerical methods for the electromagnetic modeling of microwave and millimeter-wave components (frequency selective surfaces and substrate integrated waveguides). Professor Bozzi was the recipient of the Best Young Scientist Paper Award at the XXVII General Assembly of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) in 2002, a URSI Young Scientist Award, and the best paper award at the Italian Conference on Electromagnetics in 2000. Bozzi was the general Chair of the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Workshop Series on Millimeter Wave Integration Technologies, held in Sitges, Spain, in 2011. He was the Guest Editor of the special issue on “RF/Microwave Communication Subsystems for Emerging Wireless Technologies” published in the IET Microwaves, Antennas and Propagation (June 2011). Moreover, he authored the Encyclopedia Chapter Periodic Structures in the Wiley Encyclopedia of RF and Microwave Engineering (2005) and coedited the book Periodic Structures (2006). He also authored more than 60 journal papers and more than 150 conference papers.
