Giuseppe Macchiarella (M1990-SM’06-F’15) graduated in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Milano in 1976. He is currently Associate Professor of Microwave at Politecnico di Milano (Faculty of Information Engineering). He was formerly a Researcher of National Research Council (CNR) where he was involved in the SIRIO propagation experiment (First Italian Satellite for Telecommunication).
The research interests of Prof. Macchiarella are currently in the area of microwave filters, with particular emphasis to the synthesis of innovative configurations for single and multiband combiners (multiplexers). His achievements have found several practical applications, in particular in the base station combiners for mobile communications. He has published more than 150 papers on top international journals and conference proceedings and has been responsible of several contracts and collaborations with various Companies operating in the microwave industry.
Prof. Macchiarella is the chair of IEEE Technical Committee MTT-8 (Filters and Passive Components); he is also member of the Editorial Board of IEEE Transaction on Microwave Theory and Techniques and IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters. He is in the TPC (Technical Program Committee) of IEEE International Microwave Symposium and European Microwave Conference.
Since January 2015 Giuseppe Macchiarella has been elevated to the grade of IEEE Fellow “for contributions to the synthesis of microwave filters and multiplexers”.
