(Fellow, IEEE) received the Laurea, M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Rome Tre, Rome, Italy, in 2001, 2003, and 2007, respectively.,He is the Founding Director of the Photonics Initiative at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) with Graduate Center, City University of New York (CUNY), New York, NY, USA. He is also the Einstein Professor of physics with the CUNY Graduate Center, a Professor of electrical engineering with the City College of New York, New York, an Adjunct Professor and a Senior Research Scientist with the University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, USA. From 2002 to 2008, he was periodically working at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn), Philadelphia, PA, USA, where he developed significant parts of his Ph.D. and postgraduate research. After spending one year as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at UPenn, in 2009, he joined the Faculty of the University of Texas at Austin, where he was the Temple Foundation Endowed Professor until 2018.

He is the coauthor of an edited book on Optical Antennas, over 500 journal articles and over 35 book chapters. He has been a Highly Cited Researcher from Web of Science since 2017. His current research interests span over metamaterials and plasmonics, electromangetics, optics and nanophotonics, acoustics, scattering, nanocircuits and nanostructures, miniaturized antennas and nanoantennas, and RF antennas and circuits.,Dr. Alù is a full member of URSI and a fellow of NAI, OSA, AAAS, SPIE, and APS. Over the last few years, he has received several research awards, including the IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award in 2019, the ICO Prize in Optics 2016, the Edith and Peter O’Donnell Award in Engineering in 2016, the NSF Alan T. Waterman Award in 2015, the IEEE MTT Outstanding Young Engineer Award in 2014, the OSA Adolph Lomb Medal in 2013, and the URSI Issac Koga Gold Medal in 2011. He was the Technical Program Chair for the IEEE AP-S symposium in 2016, and the program chair, and the general co-chair for several Metamaterials conferences. He is currently an Associate Editor of Applied Physics Letters and serves on the Editorial Board of Physical Review B, Advanced Optical Materials, EPJ Applied Metamaterials, and ISTE Metamaterials. He has guest edited special issues for the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics, the Proceedings of IEEE, the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, the IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, Nanophotonics, the Journal of Optics, the Journal of the Optical Society of America B, Photonics and Nanostructures: Fundamentals and Applications, Optics Communications, Metamaterials, and Sensors on a variety of topics involving metamaterials, plasmonics, optics, and electromagnetic theory. He has been a Simons Investigator of physics since 2016. He has been serving as the President of the Metamorphose Virtual Institute for Artificial Electromagnetic Materials and Metamaterials, a member of the Administrative Committee for the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, an OSA Traveling Lecturer since 2010, an IEEE AP-S Distinguished Lecturer since 2014, and the IEEE Joint AP-S and MTT-S Chapter for Central Texas.
