Biography Dr. Luigi La Spada received his bachelor’s and master’s degree (summa cum laude) in Electronics Engineering from University of RomaTre in 2008 and 2010, respectively.
2011 - 2014, he was with the Department of Applied Electronics (University of RomaTre, Italy) and the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering (University of Pennsylvania, USA); where he received his PhD in Electronic Engineering, section: Biomedical Electronics, Electromagnetics, and Telecommunications.
2014 - 2017, he was in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, as PostDoctoral Research Assistant.
2017 - 2018 (October), he was in the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics at Coventry University as Lecturer in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
From November 2018 he is in the School of Engineering and the Built Environment at Edinburgh Napier University as Lecturer in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

In 2018 the Advances in Engineering (AIE, Canada) committee selected him as a “key scientific contributor to excellence in science and engineering research”. His research received international scientific recognition and high distinction on several media press (i.e. CNN, CBS, Times, Aspen Institute). Moreover, he is the recipient of different awards, among them: 2017 URSI Young Scientist Award (Canada), finalist for 2017 IEEE Young Scientist Award, 2016 ISAP Best Paper Award (Japan) and 2015 EAI recognition for “new technologies in telecommunications and sensing”.
Research Interests His main research interests are microwave, terahertz, and optical applications of complex media and metamaterials; design of miniaturized sensors and antennas based on metamaterial technology; biological and biomedical applications of plasmonic nanoparticles; analysis and synthesis of planar metamaterials and radiating elements for sensing and telecommunications applications.
