Andrea Massa received the Laurea degree in electronic engineering and a Ph.D. degree in electronics and computer science from the University of Genoa, Italy, in 1992 and 1996, respectively. From 1997 to 1999, he was an Assistant Professor of electromagnetic fields at the Department of Biophysical and Electronic Engineering (University of Genoa). From 2001 to 2004, he was an Associate Professor at the University of Trento. Since 2005, he has been a Full Professor of electromagnetic fields at the University of Trento, and, since 2009, an Adjunct Professor at the Penn State University (USA). At present, Professor Massa is the Director of the ELEDIALab (http://www.eledia.ing.unitn.it/) and Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Engineering. He is a Member of the IEEE Society, of the PIERS Technical Committee, of the Inter-University Research Center for Interactions between Electromagnetic Fields and Biological Systems and Italian representative in the general assembly of the European Microwave Association. Professor Massa published about 200 scientific papers on international journals and more than 160 in international conferences. He has been invited as a Visiting Scientist for seminars, tutorials, and courses at various Universities, National and International Research Centres. He presented more than 40 invited contributions to scientific sessions in international conferences and he wrote 15 invited contributions to books and international journals. He has organized 30 scientific sessions in international conferences and has participated in several projects in the European framework (10 EU projects) as well as at the national level (40 projects/grants).His research activities since 1992 are mainly focused on direct and inverse scattering problems, analysis/synthesis of antenna systems, design/applications of WSNs, cross-layer optimization and planning of wireless/RF systems, propagation in complex and random media, and theory/applications of optimization techniques to engineering problems.
