Stefano Pisa received the Electronic Engineering and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Rome “La Sapienza,” Rome, Italy, in 1985 and 1988, respectively. In 1989, he joined the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Rome “La Sapienza,” as a Researcher. Since 2001, he has been an Associate Professor with the same University.
His research interests are the interaction between electromagnetic fields and biological systems, therapeutic and diagnostic applications of electromagnetic fields, and the modeling and design of antennas and MW circuits.
Dr. Pisa was the editor of the Disk of Complete References 1993–1995 for the Commission K (Electromagnetics in Biology and Medicine) of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), published at the 25th URSI General Assembly. From 1995 to 1996, he was the coordinator of a “working package” on “Electromagnetic Environment Impact and Safety Issues” of the Italian project on “Wide Band Wireless Local Area Networks–WWLAN” of the Italian Research Council (CNR). From 1995 to 1999, he was a member of the Joint Working Group (JWG) 15 on “Measurement Techniques and Procedures for High-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields With Regard to Human Exposure in the Frequency Range 10 kHz–300 GHz” created by International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). From 1997 to 1999, he was the coordinator of the working package “Survey on Existing Dosimetric Work and Development of a Database” in the framework of the European project “Cellular Phones Standard” (CEPHOS). From 1995 to 2002, he was secretary of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S)/Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) Central and South Italy Section Joint Chapter. From 2001 to 2004 he was the coordinator of the activity “Development and Optimization of Dedicated Software for the Evaluation of SAR in Subjects Exposed to Mobile Telecommunication Systems” of the Italian National Project (2001–2004) funded by the Ministry for Education, University, and Research, and devoted to the protection of people and environment from EM emissions. From 2011 to 2012 he was the Prime Contractor of the project "Non Invasive Monitoring by Ultra Wide Band Radar of Respiratory Activity of People Inside a Spatial Environment (NIMURRA)" funded by the Italian Space Agency (ASI). From 2013 to 2015 he was the coordinator of the subcontract "Innovative UWB Radar Design" of the "Kosmomed" project founded by the European Space Agency. Since 2005 Stefano Pisa is "Consulting Member” of the “Scientific Committee on Physics and Engineering" of the "International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection" (ICNIRP) and he cooperated to the document "ICNIRP Statement on EMF-emitting New Technologies".
