Principal Engineer III
Dr. Erricolo joined Roberson and Associates in 2018. He is also a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, an adjunct Professor of Bioengineering, and the Director of the Andrew Electromagnetics Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
His research focuses on electromagnetics applied to solve problems including modeling electromagnetic wave propagation for wireless communications and radar systems; antenna design and related RF front-end, in particular for full-duplex communication systems; detection of underground tunnels; and reducing temperature raise in ultra high field Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Dr. Erricolo is a University of Illinois Scholar, a Fellow of IEEE and currently the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation. He has authored or coauthored more than 260 publications in refereed journals and international conferences. He was the Guest Editor of the Special Issues on RF Effects on Digital Systems of the Electromagnetics Journal (2006), and the Lead Guest Editor of the Special Issue on Propagation Models and Inversion Approaches for Subsurface and Through Wall Imaging of the International Journal of Antennas and Propagation (2012).
He was the General Chairman of the 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI National Radio Science Meeting, held in Chicago, IL, USA in July 2012. He was Chair of the Chicago Joint Chapter of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) and Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (2011-2016); an Elected Member of the Administrative Committee of the IEEE AP-S (2012–2014); and Chair of the Distinguished Lecturer Program of the IEEE AP-S (2015–2016).
Dr. Erricolo was elected a Full Member of Commissions B, C, and E of the U.S. National Committee (USNC) of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), a committee of the U.S. National Academies. He was Chair (2009–2011), Vice Chair (2006–2008) and Secretary (2004–2005) of USNC-URSI Commission E on Electromagnetic Environment and Interference; Chair of the USNC-URSI Ernest K. Smith Student Paper Competition (2009-2014); Vice-Chair of the Local Organizing Committee of the XXIX URSI General Assembly, held in Chicago, IL, USA in August 2008; and Member at Large of USNC-URSI (2012–2017).
He has served on more than 40 conference technical program committees, chaired over 60 conference sessions, and organized more than 20 special sessions at international scientific conferences.
He received the Laurea degree of Doctor (summa cum laude) in electronics engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy, in 1993 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, USA, in 1998.
