The ACES Early Career Award is issued to honor achievements and contributions in the field of computational electromagnetics by a researcher aged 35 years or younger at the time of nomination. ACES provides a forum for issues relevant to numerical modeling in applied electromagnetics, with a focus on computational techniques, electromagnetics modeling software, and applications. A goal of the ACES community is to enhance electromagnetic computations by means of novel techniques, pushing the frontiers of what is possible.

A senior staff member, Salvatore’s areas of expertise include electromagnetic theory, antennas, metamaterials, plasmonics in nanostructures, and optical devices.

He was named a Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar while still a University of California Irvine (UCI) graduate student. Salvatore also received the 2016 Outstanding Young Professional award from the IEEE honor society Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN), and was selected as one of UCI’s top 50 graduate and postdoctoral scholar alumni.

Salvatore will receive his award during a ceremony at the ACES 2017 annual symposium in Firenze, Italy, in March.
