Giuseppe Mazzarella graduated summa cum laude in Electronic Engineering in 1984, and earned a PdD in Electronic Engineering and Computer Science in 1989, from the Università Federico II of Naples (Italy). In 1990 he became Assistant Professor at the Department of Electronic Engineering of the same university. Since 1992, he is with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the Università di Cagliari, first as Associate and, since 2000, as Full Professor , teaching courses on Electromagnetic Fields, microvave and Antenna Engineering and Remote Sensing. Until now he has been scientific coordinator, or local coordinator, of many research grants, funded by public entities through public tenders, and of research contracts on slot antenna design and adaptive antennas, commissioned by Italian enterprises. His research activity has dealt with: • effective slot array design, including the design of their BeamForming Network; • power syntesis of general arrays, with a focus on the inclusion of realizative constraints; • reconstruction of dielectric profiles from scattered data; • reconstruction of reflector profiles using techniques based on the microwave holography; • syntesis of printed antennas, with emphasys on low-loss, or compact, feeding networks; • use of evolutionary programming in the antenna design and optimiaztion. He is author, or co-author of more than 40 papers on international journal, and over 60 communications on international symposia. He has been responsible for more than 50 Laurea thesis, and tutor of 10 PhD students, on the whole range of his research activities.
