Paolo Burghignoli was born inRome, Italy, on February 18, 1973.He received the Laurea degree (cum laude) in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in applied electromagnetics from “La Sapienza” University of Rome, Rome, Italy, in 1997 and 2001, respectively. In 1997, he joined the Electronic Engineering Department, now Department of Information Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications, “La Sapienza” University of Rome. Since November 2010 he has been an Assistant Professor with the same University. From January 2004 to July 2004, he was a Visiting Research Assistant Professor with the University of Houston, Houston, TX, USA. In January 2014, he received the national scientific qualification to become an Associate Professor of Electromagnetics in Italian Universities. His scientific interests include analysis and design of planar antennas and arrays, leakage phenomena in uniform and periodic structures, numerical methods for integral equations and periodic structures, propagation and radiation in metamaterials, and graphene electromagnetics. Dr. Burghignoli was a recipient of the “Giorgio Barzilai” Laurea Prize (1996–1997) presented by the former IEEE Central & South Italy Section, of a 2003 IEEE MTT-S Graduate Fellowship, and of a 2005 Raj Mittra Travel Grant for Junior Researchers presented at the IEEE AP-S Symposium on Antennas and Propagation,Washington, DC, USA. He is a coauthor of the “Fast Breaking Papers, October 2007” in EE and CS, about metamaterials (paper that had the highest percentage increase in citations in Essential Science Indicators, ESI). He is a Senior Member of IEEE.
