Vincenzo Galdi received the Laurea degree (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering and the Ph.D. degree in applied electromagnetics from the University of Salerno, Italy, in 1995 and 1999, respectively. From April to December 1997, he held a visiting position in the Radio Frequency Division of ESTEC-ESA, Noordwijk, The Netherlands. From September 1999 to August 2002, he held a post-doctoral Research Associate position in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Boston University. In November 2002, he was appointed Associate Professor of Electromagnetics, and joined the Department of Engineering at the University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy, where is currently working. He has served as Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies in Telecommunication Engineering (2005-2010), and is currently serving as the Delegate reporting to the Dean of Engineering regarding teaching matters (since 2007). He is an associate of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and of the SPIN Institute of the National Research Council (CNR). In July-August 2006, within the framework of the LIGO experiment, he held a visiting position at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and at the California Institute of Technology. He is the author or coauthor of nearly 200 papers published in peer-reviewed international journals, books, and conference proceedings, and a regular reviewer for several journals, conferences and funding agencies. His research interests encompass analytical and numerical techniques for wave propagation in complex environments, metamaterials, electromagnetic chaos, inverse scattering, and gravitational interferometry. Dr. Galdi is the recipient of a 2001 URSI “Young Scientist Award,” a Senior Member of the IEEE, and a member of Sigma Xi, and of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC).
