Danilo Erricolo elected Fellow of Electromagnetics Academy

Danilo Erricolo

Professor Danilo Erricolo was elected Fellow of the Electromagnetics Academy, an honor bestowed on researchers with extraordinary accomplishments in electromagnetics.

The Academy is “devoted to academic excellence and the advancement of research and relevant applications of the electromagnetics profession.” Elevation to Fellow in the Academy is an honor in recognition of scholarly achievements and distinguished educational and professional services.

Erricolo was recognized at a ceremony during the Photonics and Electromagnetics Research Symposium in Chengdu, China in April.

“I am extremely honored by this recognition for my contributions to electromagnetic scattering and the computation of special functions,” Erricolo said. “Research in electromagnetics enables technology that uses electromagnetic waves, such as radios, TVs, cellular phones, smart watches, satellite communications, radar systems, medical imaging systems, computers, and self-driving cars.”

Erricolo directs the Andrew Electromagnetics Laboratory, which specializes in applied research in electromagnetism, wireless propagation, and antenna design.

In addition to the Electromagnetics Academy, Erricolo is a Fellow of the Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Last year, Erricolo received the United States National Committee for the International Union of Radio Science (USNC-URSI) Impact Award for his leadership in radio science research, education, and his commitment to diversity, inclusion, and outreach efforts.

“Electromagnetics has improved the lives of billions of people, and there is much more to discover. I look forward to continuing to contribute directly and working with my students and colleagues to further this field,” Erricolo said.
