Gaetano Marrocco was born in Teramo, Italy, on August 29, 1969. He received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering (cum
Laude and Academic Honors) and the Ph.D. degree in Applied Electromagnetics at the
University of L'Aquila, Italy, in 1994 and 1998, respectively. He currently teaches Electromagnetic Technology for Wireless Systems, Antenna Design and Medical Radio-Systems, he chair the Pervasive Electromagnetics Labs and is Advisor in the Geo-Information PhD program.
His research is mainly directed to the modelling and design of broadband and ultra wideband (UWB) antennas and arrays as well as of sensor-oriented miniaturized antennas for BioEngineering, Aeronautics and Radiofrequency Identification (RFID). During the last decade, he carried out pioneering research on the wireless-activated sensors, contributing to move from the labeling of objects to the passive sensor networks in the Internet of Things era. His lab designed and experimented the first battery-less RF sensors for deformation, temperature, humidity, gasses, implanted bio prosthesis, and human motion detection and classification, recovering of tactile feeling.
Prof. Marrocco has been involved in several Space, Avionic, Naval and Vehicular programs of the European Space Agency, NATO, Italian Space Agency, and the Italian Navy about the analysis and the design of non-conventional antennas and systems over platforms (satellite, car, ship, nano-satellite, airplanes). He submitted nine patents on broadband naval antennas and structural arrays, and on sensor RFID systems. He was the Principal Investigator of the Research program PRIN-2008 “Multi-Tag”.
He served as Associate Editor of the IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters 2008-2014 and now he is Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Radiofrequency Identification and member of the board committee of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Awards.
He is moreover Vice-Chair of the Italian delegation URSI Commission D: Electronics and Photonics. In 2008 he was the General Chairman of the first Italian multidisciplinary scientific workshop on RFID: RFIDays-2008: Emerging Technology for Radiofrequency Identification. He was the co-chair of the RFIDays-2010 International Workshop in Finland, Chairman of the Local Committee of the V European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP-2011), TPC chair of the 2012 IEEE-RFID TA in Nice, France, TPC co-Chair of the 2013 IEEE-RFID USA, and TPC co-chair of the 2016 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Int. Symposium, TPC-co-chair of IEEE-RFID 2018 USA.
Prof. Marrocco is the co-founder and President of the University spin-off RADIO6ENSE (www.radio6ense.com) active in the short-range electromagnetic sensing for Automotive, Cyber and Physical Security and Structural Health Monitoring.
