Laurea in Electronic Engineering and Ph.D. in Applied Electromagnetics at the University of L’Aquila, Italy, in 1994 and 1998, respectively. Researcher at the University of Roma Tor Vergata in 1994-2014. Associate Professor of Electromagnetics in 2013-2017. Guest Professor at the University of Paris-est Marne la Vallèe in 2015 and Full Professor at the University of Roma Tor Vergata since 2018. He currently serves as Director of the Medical Engineering School.
His research is mainly directed to the modeling and design of broadband and ultra-wideband (UWB) antennas and arrays as well as of sensor-oriented miniaturized antennas for Biomedical Engineering, Aeronautics, and Radiofrequency Identification (RFID). During the last decade, he carried out pioneering research on the wireless-activated sensors, and in particular on Wearable and Epidermal Electronics, contributing to the move from the labeling of objects to the passive sensor networks in the Internet of Things era. He serves as Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Radiofrequency Identification and IEEE Flexible Electronics Journal and was a member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Awards committee. He is moreover Chair of the Italian delegation URSI Commission D Electronics and Photonics. He was the chair of the Local Committee of the V European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP-2011), URSI-GA 2021-22, TPC chair of the 2012 IEEE-RFID TA in Nice, France, TPC track-chair of the 2016 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Int. Symposium, TPC track-chair of IEEE-RFID 2018 USA, track chair of FLEPS-2021/22.
He is listed in the PLOS ranking of Top 1.5% Scientist Worldwide.
Prof. Marrocco is the director of the Pervasive Electromagnetics Lab and the co-founder and president of the University spin-off RADIO6ENSE (www.radio6ense.com) that is active in the short-range electromagnetic sensing for Industrial Internet of Things, Smart Manufacturing, Automotive, Food, and Biotech.
