Frank S. Marzano, PhD, Fellow IEEE
Prof. Frank Silvio Marzano, Ph.D.
Prof. Frank S. Marzano received the Laurea degree (cum laude) in Electrical Engineering (1988) and the Ph.D. degree (1993) in Applied Electromagnetics and Electrophysical Sciences, both from the Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. In 1992 he was a visiting scientist at Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL. In 1993 he collaborated with the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, National Council of Research (CNR), Rome, Italy. From 1994 till 1996, he was with the Italian Space Agency, Rome, Italy, as a post-doctorate researcher. After being a lecturer at the University of Perugia, Italy, in 1997 he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of L’Aquila, Italy teaching courses on electromagnetic fields as Assistant Professor. In 1999 he was at Naval Research Laboratory, Monterey, CA, as a visiting scientist. In 2002 he got the qualification to Associate Professorship and co-founded Center of Excellence on Remote Sensing and Model-based Prediction of Severe events (CETEMPS), L’Aquila. In 2005 he joined the Dept. of Information engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications (DIET), Sapienza University of Rome, Italy where he presently teaches courses on antennas, propagation and remote sensing, as a full professor since 2019. Since 2007 he has been vice-director of CETEMPS of the University of L’Aquila, Italy where he was nominated director in March 2013. Since 2013 he has been the Chair of the Electronic Engineering bachelor and master programs of the Sapienza University of Rome and since 2018 the vice-chair of the Master program (Laurea Magistrale) in Atmospheric Science and Technology (LMAST), a joint MSc program between Sapienza University of Rome and University of L'Aquila. His current research concerns passive and active remote sensing of the atmosphere from ground-based, airborne, and space-borne platforms and electromagnetic propagation studies. Dr. Marzano has published more than 170 papers on refereed International Journals, more than 25 contributions to international Book chapters and more than 300 extended abstracts on international and national congress proceedings. He was the Co-Editor of 2 books and Section Editor of Springer’s “Encyclopedia of Remote Sensing”, published in 2014. From January 2004 to June 2014 he has been acting as an Associated Editor of IEEE Geoscience Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL) and since mid 2014 he is Associated Editor of IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (TGRS). Since January 2011 he is Associate Editor of the Atmospheric Measurements Techniques (AMT) journal and since 2019 of the Bulletin of Atmospheric Science and Technology (BAST). Since 2017 he is also the chair of IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Chapter of Central-North Italy (GRS29-CNI). In 2012 he has been nominated Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) and in 2015 Fellow of IEEE for “contributions to microwave remote sensing in meteorology and volcanology”. In 2020 Prof. Marzano was inserted in the World's Top 2% Scientists database of Stanford University (USA).
