Sandra COSTANZO received the Laurea degree (summa cum laude) in Computer Engineering from the University of
Calabria in 1996, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Reggio Calabria in 2000.
Currently, she is an Associate Professor at University of Calabria, Italy, where she teaches the courses of
electromagnetic waves propagation, antennas, remote sensing and radar systems, and electromagnetic diagnostics. At
the same University, she is the Coordinator of the Master Degree Course in Telecommunication Engineering. She holds
the Italian National Qualification for Full Professor Position in Electromagnetic Fields. Since 1996, she has been
involved in many research projects funded by ESA (European Space Agency), ASI (Agenzia Spaziale Italiana), MIUR
(Ministero dell’Istruzione, dell’Università e della Ricerca) and private companies. She is Senior Member of IEEE,
member of IEEE South Italy Geoscience and Remote Sensing Chapter, CNIT (Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario
per le Telecomunicazioni), SIEm (Società Italiana di Elettromagnetismo), ICEMB (Centro Interuniversitario sulle
Interazioni tra Campi Elettromagnetici e Biosistemi), Member of MTT-10 Biological Effects and Medical Application
Committee, Board Member of IEEEAP/ED/MTT North Italy Chapter, and of IEEE Information Theory Italy Chapter.
She is Associate Editor for ‘IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters’, ‘IEEE Access’, ‘IEEE Journal of
Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology’, and member of the Editorial Board for
‘Radioengineering’, ‘International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering’, and ‘Electronics’. Her
research interests are focused on near-field far-field techniques, antenna measurement techniques, antenna analysis and
synthesis, numerical methods in electromagnetics, millimeter-wave antennas, reflectarrays, microwave sensors for
biomedical applications, microwave and millimeter waves in biomedical applications and healthcare, microwave
imaging, electromagnetic characterization of materials, innovative antennas and technologies for radar applications. She
