He received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Perugia, Italy, in 1997. Since 1992, he was involved in FDTD analysis of microwave structures in cooperation with the Department of Electronic and Information Engineering (DIEI), University of Perugia. In 1999, he was appointed Research associate. Since January 2007, he is Associate Professor with the same University, teaching the classes of Radiofrequency Engineering. His research activities concern numerical methods and CAD techniques for passive microwave structures and the analysis and design of microwave and millimeter-wave circuits. More recently his research interests were mainly focused on the study of microwave circuits printed on green substrates, with special attention to RFID and new materials . These research activities are testified by more than one hundred publications in the most important specialized journals and at the main conferences of the microwave scientific community. He serves as reviewer of a number of IEEE journals and he belongs to the TARGET (Top Amplifier Research Group in a European Team) and to the AMICOM (Advanced MEMS for RF and Millimeterwave Communications) Networks of Excellence. He is member of the IMS Technical Program Review Committee and of the Technical Committee MTT-24 RFID Technologies. He serves as Associate Editor of the ACES Journal. Paolo Mezzanotte was the co-chairman of the seventh edition of the international workshop “Computational Electromagnetics in Time-Domain” (CEM-TD 2007). At present he is vice-director of the Engeneering Department - University of Perugia. The H-index of Paolo Mezzanotte is equal to 20 with more than 1100 citations (source Google Scholar).
