University of Illinois at Chicago/UIC

Prof. Danilo Erricolo (Fellow, IEEE) received the Laurea degree of Doctor (summa cum laude) in electronics engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy, in 1993, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC), Chicago, IL, USA, in 1998. He is currently a Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Director of the Andrew Electromagnetics Laboratory, and an Adjunct Professor in bioengineering with UIC.

In 2017, he was nominated as a University of Illinois Scholar. In summer 2009, he was an Air Force Faculty Fellow with the Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, OH, USA.

He has authored or coauthored more than 300 publications in refereed journals and international conferences. His research interests include the areas of antenna design, electromagnetic propagation and scattering, high-frequency techniques, wireless communications, electromagnetic compatibility, the computation of special functions, and magnetic resonance imaging.

He was elected as a Full Member of Commissions B, C and E of the U.S. National Committee (USNC) of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), and a Committee of the U.S. National Academies. He served as the Chair (2009–2011), the Vice Chair (2006–2008), and the Secretary of the USNC-URSI Commission E on Electromagnetic Environment and Interference (2004–2005). He was the Chair of the USNC-URSI Ernest K. Smith Student Paper Competition (2009–2014), the Vice-Chair of the Local Organizing Committee of the XXIX URSI General Assembly, Chicago, in August 2008, and a member at Large of USNC-URSI (2012–2017). He was the General Chairperson of the 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI National Radio Science Meeting, Chicago, in July 2012. He was an Elected Member of the IEEE AP-S Administrative Committee (2012–2014), the Chair of the IEEE AP-S Distinguished Lecturer Program (2015–2016), and the Chair of the Chicago Joint Chapter of the IEEE AP-S and Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (2011–2016). He has served on more than 50 conference technical program committees, chaired over 70 conference sessions, and organized more than 30 special sessions at international scientific conferences. He has been the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, since August 2016.
