Giampiero Gerini (M’92-SM’-08) received the M.Sc. degree (summa cum laude) and the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from the University of Ancona, Italy, in 1988 and 1992, respectively. From 1992 to 1994 he was Assistant Professor of Electromagnetic Fields at the same University. From 1994 to 1997, he was Research Fellow at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESA-ESTEC), Noordwijk, The Netherlands, where he joined the Radio Frequency System Division. Since 1997, he has been with the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), The Hague, The Netherlands. At TNO Defence Security and Safety, form 1997 to 2013, he was Chief Senior Scientist of the Antenna Unit in the Radar Technology Department. In 2014, he has joined the Optics Department where he is charge of the metamaterial research program.  In 2007, he has been appointed as part-time Professor in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, with a chair on Novel Structures and Concepts for Advanced Antennas.

He was co-recipient of the 2008 H. A. Wheeler Applications Prize Paper Award of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society. He was co-recipient also of the Best Innovative Paper Prize of the 30th ESA Antenna Workshop in 2008 and of the best antenna theory paper prize of the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP) in 2010.

His main research interests are phased arrays antennas, electromagnetic bandgap structures, frequency selective surfaces, metamaterials (from microwave up to optical frequencies), super-resolution lenses and integrated antennas at microwave, millimeter and sub-millimeter wave frequencies. The main application fields of interest are imaging, metrology, radar and telecommunication systems.
