Giuseppe Vecchi received the Laurea and Ph.D. (Dottorato di Ricerca) degrees in electronic engineering from the Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy, in 1985 and 1989, respectively, with doctoral research carried out partly at Polytechnic University (Farmingdale, NY). He was a Visiting Scientist with Polytechnic University in 1989-1990, and since 1990 he is with the Department of Electronics, Politecnico di Torino, where he has been Assistant Professor, Associate Professor (1992 - 2000), and Professor. He was a Visiting Scientist at the University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland, in 1992, and has been an Adjunct Faculty in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Illinois at Chicago, 1997-2011. Since 2015 he serves as the Director of the Antenna and EMC Lab (LACE) at Politecnico.
Prof. Vecchi is a Fellow of the IEEE, and member of the Board of the European School of Antennas (ESOA). He has been an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, Chairman of the IEEE AP/MTT/ED Italian joint Chapter, and member of the IEEE-APS Educational Committee.
His current research activities concern analytical and numerical techniques for design, measurement and diagnostics of antennas and devices, medical applications, and imaging.
He is a member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Standard Committee, of the P1720 working group for the revision of IEEE Std 1720™ “Recommended Practice for Near Field Antenna Measurements”, of the P145 - Standard for Definitions of Terms for Antennas, and of the International Committee of Electromagnetic Safety (ICES) (SCC39).
