Giuseppe Schettini received the Laurea degree (cum laude) in electronic engineering, the Ph. D. degree in applied electromagnetics, and the Laurea degree (cum laude) in physics from “La Sapienza” University of Rome, Rome, Italy, in 1986, in 1991, and 1995, respectively. Upon his graduation in electronic engineering he joined the Italian Energy and Environment Agency (ENEA), where he was initially involved with free electron generators of millimeter waves and then on microwave components and antennas for the heating of thermonuclear plasmas. In 1992 he joined “La Sapienza” University as Researcher of electromagnetics. From 1995 to 1998, he was a temporary Professor of electromagnetics. In 1998, he joined the Applied Electronics Department of “Roma Tre” University of Rome, Rome, Italy where he has been an Associate Professor from 1998 to 2005, and a Full Professor of Antennas and of Microwaves since 2005. His scientific research is focused on structures for guiding and radiation of electromagnetic fields for microwave and millimeter waves applications, scattering, diffractive optics, plasma heating and current drive, Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) media, anisotropic media.
Prof. Schettini is a member of the Italian Electromagnetic Society (SIEm), the European Microwave Association (EuMA), The Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE), the Optical Society of America (OSA), and a senior member of the International Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
