Luca Perregrini (M’97-SM’12–F’16) was born in Sondrio, Italy, in 1964. He received the “Laurea” degree in Electronic Engineering and the Ph.D. in Electronics and Computer Science in 1989 and 1993, respectively. He is Full Professor in electromagnetics with the Department of Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Engineering of the University of Pavia, where he is also responsible of the Microwave Laboratory. Since 1995 he has been teaching courses in Electromagnetic Field Theory, Microwaves, Circuit Theory, Microwave Measurements, Numerical Techniques for Electromagnetics. He has been the tutor of several Ph.D. students and the supervisor of many MS and BS students. He has been a visiting professor at the École Polytechnique de Montréal, Québec, Canada in 2001, 2002, 2005, and 2006.
Prof. Perregrini has been responsible of many research contracts with prominent international research centers and companies. His main research interests have been focused on the development of numerical methods for electromagnetics, and the design of microwave components and antennas.
He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a member of the Technical Committee MTT–15 (Microwave Field Theory) of IEEE MTT Society, a member of the Board of Directors of the European Microwave Association (EuMA), and a member of the Società Italiana di Elettromagnetismo (SIEm), and he has been a member of the General Assembly of EuMA (2011-2013).
Prof. Perregrini is currently Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Technique. He also serves as Associate Editor of the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies (since 2011), IET Electronic Letters (since 2015. He was Associate Editor of the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters (2010-2013) and of IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques (2013-2016), and Gest Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques (Jan. 2015) ) and of the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies (June 2015). He co-edited the book Periodic Structures, (Research Signpost, 2006). He is the appointed Technical Program Committee Chair of the International Microwave Workshop Series on Advanced Materials and Processes (IMWS-AMP 2017) (Pavia, Italy, Sept. 2017), and he was the Technical Program Committee Chair of the IEEE MTT-S International Conference on Numerical Electromagnetic Modeling and Optimization (NEMO2014) (Pavia, Italy, May 2014), and of the European Microwave Conference (Rome, Italy, Oct. 2014). He also served as a member of prize committees for several conferences/societies.
Prof. Perregrini has been an invited speaker at many conferences, and has delivered invited seminar talks in Universities and research centers worldwide. He was the co-recipient of the Best Paper Award at the 15th Mediterranean Microwave Symposium (MMS2015), of the Best Student Paper Award at the 4th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP 2010), and the 2nd Best Student Paper Award at the 27th Int. Review of Progress in Applied Computational Electromagnetics (ACES 2010). He authored or co-authored more than 80 journal papers and more than 230 conference papers, 6 book chapters, and 2 textbooks.
