Antonella D’Orazio (’58) received the laurea degree in Electrical Engineering, summa cum laude, from the University of Bari in 1983 and the Ph.D. degree in Electromagnetisms in 1987. Since 1983, she joined the Integrated Optics Laboratory (Technical University – Bari), before as Ph.D. student, then as Assistant Professor (1990). In 1998 she became associate professor. Since 2003 she is full professor of Electromagnetic Fields of the Politecnico di Bari and the head of the“nanoPhotonics and Electromagnetics Group”. She acts as Referee of National and International Projects. She cooperates with researchers of national and international research centers, Universities and industries. Since 1983 she has been involved in numerous national and international projects, co-operations, research contracts. She has been involved in the activities of the COST Actions 268, 288,MP0702 and MP0805. Her research interests include linear and nonlinear guided optic propagation, modeling and numerical methods for the design of linear and nonlinear integrated optic devices, fabrication and optical characterization of devices made by Ti:LiNbO3 and ion-exchanged waveguides, modelling, fabrication and characterization of microwave and electromagnetic band gap devices, modeling, fabrication and characterization of photonic bandgap structures, metamaterials and plasmonic structures. She has co-authored over 320 papers published on journals and international conferences, lectures and invited papers. She acts as Referee of international journals. She is member of technical committees of international and national conferences. She is member of IEEE, OSA, AEIT, S.I.Em (Italian Society of Electromagnetism), SIOF (Italian Branch of the European Optical Society).
