Pierpaolo Usai

03Pierpaolo Usai received the Laurea degree in Telecommunication Engineering and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy, in 2008 and 2013, respectively. His Laurea thesis dealt with the study and the implementation of ray tracing speed-up methods to evaluate the electric field propagation in complex scenarios. In November 2009 he joined, as a CNIT junior researcher, the Microwave and Radiation Laboratory at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Pisa, conducting researches in the area of monitoring the electromagnetic field levels near high frequency sources to prevent human health risks. In January 2010 he joined, as a PhD student, the “Leonardo da Vinci” PhD School in Pisa conducting researches on using the asymptotic methods for the propagation channel estimation in complex scenarios and for the prediction of the scattering matrix of objects equipped with rotating blades. From November 2010 to December 2010, he was a Visiting Ph.D. researcher at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) at Munich, Germany conducting researches on airport surface channel characterization at high frequency. In 2011 and 2012 he was involved in the SHIRED project, whose aim was to minimize the antennas sizes for shipboard applications. After receiving the Ph.D. degree, he is currently with the Microwave and Radiation Laboratory and RaSS Laboratory as a post-Ph.D. position.
