Short Bio

I am a Senior Wireless R&D Scientist working for Intracom Telecom S.A. developing new generations of 6G telecommunication components, such as antennas and RIS, while managing and coordinating International Research Funding Programs (EU Horizon 2020, SNS-JU, etc). Between 2022 and 2023 I worked as Senior Metamaterial R&D Engineer for Meta Materials Inc., developing metamaterials and metamaterial-inspired technologies for industrial and biomedical applications. I received my Ph.D. in Electromagnetic and Circuit Theory in 2019 (advisor: Prof. Ari Sihvola), and I worked briefly as a postdoc on reconfigurable metasurfaces (Prof. Sergei Tretyakov) at the same university.  

Between 2019 to 2022, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Engheta group at the University of Pennsylvania, focusing on several projects revolving around disruptive concepts in advanced electromagnetics, complex media-metamaterials, and disruptive ideas for next-generation wave-matter interactions. I worked on several prestigious projects, e.g., the AFOSR MURI-Attojoule Nano-optoelectronics, the Simons Collaboration on Extreme Wave Phenomena Based on Symmetries, the MRSEC Research at Penn, and the AFOSR MURI - Meta Imaging project.

 My primary expertise is in electromagnetic (EM) wave physics, RF and antenna engineering, plasmonics, metamaterials, metasurfaces, inverse design, and applied mathematics. My interests also include EM teaching and EM pedagogical research. 

I am an active member of the engineering (IEEE), radio science (URSI), and optical (OPTICA) communities.  I am serving as a reviewer for the following 

Journal and scientific societies
