Lorenzo Crocco

Lorenzo Crocco is a Senior Researcher with the Institute for the Electromagnetic Sensing of the Environment, National Research Council of Italy (IREA-CNR). His scientific activities mainly concern theoretical aspects and applications of electromagnetic scattering, with a focus on diagnostic and therapeutic uses of EM fields, through-the-wall radar and GPR. On these topics, he has published more than 100 papers, given keynote talks and led or participated to research projects. He has served as Guest Editor for international journals and is currently associate editor for the IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology (IEEE J-ERM). He has co-edited the book “Emerging Electromagnetic Technologies for Brain Diseases Diagnostics, Monitoring and Therapy”. From 2009 to 2012, he has adjunct professor at the Mediterranea University of Reggio Calabria, Italy, teaching Electromagnetic Waves and Non-invasive EM Diagnostics. Since 2013, he has been an instructor for the European School of Antennas (ESOA), giving lectures on inverse scattering and biomedical applications of MWI. In 2018, he was habilitated as full professor of Electromagnetic Fields by the Italian Ministry of Research and University. From 2013-2017, Dr Crocco served as an elected Working Group Leader for the MiMed COST action (TD1301) on microwave imaging, and he is currently a member of the MyWAVE COST action (CA17115) on electromagnetic hyperthermia. Since 2017, he is Member of the Board of Directors of the Italian Electromagnetic Society (SIEm). Since 2019, he is a member of the Italian URSI Commission. Dr. Crocco is a Fellow of The Electromagnetics Academy (TEA) and a Senior Member of IEEE (2010), he has been the recipient of the “Barzilai” Award for Young Scientists from the Italian Electromagnetic Society (2004). In 2009, he was awarded among the best under 40 scientists of CNR.
