Matteo Oldoni was born in Milan, Italy, in 1984. He obtained his M.Sc. in Telecommunications Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, Milan Italy, in 2009 and then his Ph.D. in 2013 with mentoring and supervision by Prof. G. Macchiarella in the area of microwave filters and diplexers, with cooperations with the European Space Agency (ESA-ESTEC, The Netherlands), the French INRIA organization (Sophia Anticpolis, with mentoring by Dr. F. Seyfert) and several private companies. His works on lossy microwave filters and diplexer modelling were awarded the “Young Engineers Prize” at the European Microwave Conference 2009 and the “Best PhD student of XXV cycle” by the Electronics and Information Dept. From 2013 to 2022 he moved to the private sector, becoming part of the R&D team dedicated to passive microwave devices in SIAE Microelettronica, Cologno Monzese, Italy. His activities were focused on innovation projects, including orbital-angular momentum antennas and communication systems (OAM or vortex beams and MIMO), modelling of passive and active components, phased arrays, synthesis and design of microwave filters, additive manufacturing. He also joined funded projects for the European Space Agency as well as Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programs.
From June 2022 he is a full-time Researcher Assistant Professor at the Electronics, Information and Bioengineering Dept. of Politecnico di Milano, with teaching activities in electromagnetic fields and radio-frequency systems for Master students. He continues his research in the synthesis and design techniques for microwave filters, algorithms development for computer-aided tuning, antenna design and numerical methods for electromagnetics. He is co-author of 5 patents in the field of antennas and communications systems and co-author of 2 books about microwave filters and radio systems. Throughout his career he was involved in divulgation activities dedicated to wireless communications systems and components at microwave and mm-waves, through conferences, white papers and invited lectures. He wrote more than 20 international journal papers and more than 30 conference papers.
