Gaetano Marrocco received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering (cum Laude and Academic Honour) and the Ph.D. degree in Applied Electromagnetics from the University of L'Aquila, Italy, in 1994 and 1998, respectively. In 1994, he was at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champain as a Postgraduate Student. Since 1997, he has been a Researcher at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata," Rome, Italy, where he currently teaches Electromagnetic Technology for Wireless Systems, Antenna Design and Medical Radio-Systems, manages the Pervasive Electromagnetics Labs and is Advisor in the Geo-Information PhD program. In 1999, he was Visiting Researcher at the Imperial College in London, U.K. In 2008 he joined the PhD program of the University of Grenoble (FR). In 2010 he achieved the degree of Associate Professor of Electromagnetic.
            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). 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. 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” involving University of Siena, University of Bologna and Polytechnic of Turin.
            Currently, he serves as Associate Editor of the IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, 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 and TPC co-Chair of the 2013 IEEE-RFID USA.

            Prof. Marrocco is the co-founder of the University spin-off RADIO6ENSE active in the short-range electromagnetic sensing for Aerospace, Healthcare, Internet of Things and Smart Cities.
