Research

Since 2002 I have been active in several research areas of Electrical Engineering characterized by a strong degree of interdisciplinarity. 

Here is a short list of my research interests (in alphabetical order) and some specific topics I dealt with during my career.

  • Antennas: metallic and dielectric nanoantennas; UWB antennas; WLAN antennas; wireless systems.
  • Computational electromagnetics: numerical and analytical techniques for the modeling of periodic structures.
  • Graphene: graphene silicon photonics; graphene plasmonics; graphene nonlinear optics.
  • Nonlinear optics: nonlinear effects in guiding structures and nanoantennas.
  • Plasmonics: metallic nanoantennas; metallic and graphene plasmon waveguides; nonlinear plasmonics.
  • Smart cities and communities: smart grids; smart maintenance; factories of the future.
