Fabrizio Frezza was born in Rome, Italy, on October 31, 1960. He received the “Laurea” (degree) “cum laude” in Electronic Engineering in 1986 and the Doctorate degree in Applied Electromagnetics and Electrophysical Sciences in 1991, both from “La Sapienza” University of Rome, Italy.
In 1986, he joined the Department of Electronics of the same University, where he was Researcher from 1990 to 1998, temporary Professor of Electromagnetic Fields from 1994 to 1998, Associate Professor from 1998 to 2004, and he has been Full Professor of Electromagnetic Fields since 2005.
Fabrizio Frezza has been Member of the Board of the European School of Antennas (ESoA) since 2005: he is in charge of the Course “Leaky Waves and Periodic Structures for Antenna Applications”.
He is member of the Research Center for Nanotechnologies applied to Engineering (CNIS), of the Research Center for Aerospace (CRAS), of the Italian University Consortium for Telecommunications (CNIT), of the International Research Center on Mathematics and Mechanics of Complex Systems (M&MOCS), of the Microwave Engineering Center for Space Applications (MECSA). He has been member of the Scientific Council of Dianax Study Group. He is the author of three textbooks on basic and advanced electromagnetics. His research activity has concerned guiding structures, antennas and resonators for microwaves and millimeter waves, numerical methods, scattering, optical propagation, plasma heating, anisotropic media, artificial materials and metamaterials. He is author of about 500 scientific papers and author or editor of 4 scientific books.
Fabrizio Frezza has belonged to the Editorial Board of IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques. He belongs to the Scientific Council of the Italian Journal of Composites and Nanotechnologies. He has also served as a reviewer for many international journals. He is the Director of the Book Series on Electromagnetics and Optics of the Aracne Editions. He is Topical Editor for Scattering and Propagation of the Journal of the Optical Society of America A.
He is a Senior Member of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), a Senior Member of OSA (Optical Society of America), of Sigma Xi, and of Metamorphose Virtual Institute.
Fabrizio Frezza received the “Giovanni Carosio” Prize in 1986, the “Giorgio Barzilai” Prize in 1994, the “Sapienza Ricerca” Prize in 2010, and the “Best Paper Award” at International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation in 2012. In 2013, a paper of his has been rewarded at the International URSI Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory, another one at the 6th UCMMT conference. In 2014, three papers of his have been rewarded at the International URSI General Assembly and Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory. In 2015, one paper of his have been rewarded at the URSI Mid-Atlantic Meeting. In 2016, one paper of his have been rewarded at the URSI International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory.
