Mauro Ettorre

Board Members

Mauro Ettorre (M’08–SM’15-F’23) received a Laurea degree “summa cum laude” in Electrical Engineering, and a Ph.D. degree in Electromagnetics from the University of Siena, Italy, in 2004 and 2008, respectively. Part of his Ph.D. work was developed at the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), The Hague, the Netherlands, where he later worked as an Antenna Researcher. From 2008 to 2010, Dr. Ettorre was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Institut d’Electronique et de Télécommunications de Rennes (IETR), University of Rennes 1, France. In 2010 and 2016, he was a Visiting Scholar in the Radiation Laboratory, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Michigan, USA. In October 2010, he joined CNRS, IETR (Scientist at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) as research scientist. Since 2023, he is a professor in in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Michigan State University, East Lansing, USA. From 2014 until 2020, he assumed responsibilities for the multi-beam antenna activity for satellite applications in the joint laboratory between IETR and Thales Alenia Space, France. From 2017 till 2023, he serveds as Associate Editor for the IEEE Transaction on Antennas and Propagation for which he is now a Track Editor. In 2017, 2018, and 2019 he was member of the best paper award selection committee for the IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology. In 2023, he was member of the best paper award selection committee for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation. In 2020 and 2021 he was appointed EurAAP (European Association on Antennas and Propagation) ambassador. From 2022 until 2023 he was chair of the working group on active array antennas by EurAAP. Since 2023, he is member of the Board of Directors of EurAAP. Dr. Ettorre’s research interests include the analysis and design of leaky-wave antennas, periodic structures, arrays, millimeter-wave antennas, non-diffractive radiation and localized waves and near-field focusing techniques.

Dr. Ettorre received the Young Antenna Engineer Prize at the 2008 ESA Antenna Workshop in the Netherlands, the Innovation Award at 2018 ESA Antenna Workshop in the Netherlands, the Best Paper Award in Electromagnetics and Antenna Theory at the 2018 ‎European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP), London, UK, the Best Antennas Paper Award at EuCAP 2021, Düsseldorf, Germany, and the Best Paper Award at the 2023 International Workshop on Antenna Technology (iWAT), Aalborg, Denmark. ‎
