  • Brief Bio

    Dr. Paolo de Matthaeis was born in Rome, Italy. He received the Laurea degree (Summa cum Laude) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rome "Tor Vergata", Italy, in 1991. In 1993-1994 he was with the European Space Agency at ESTEC in The Netherlands under the Young Graduate Trainee program. In 1994-1995, he received a grant from the Italian Space Agency (ASI) to carry out research in the SIR-C/X-SAR data at the Remote Sensing Laboratory at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata". He earned the Doctor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from The George Washington University in Washington, DC in 2005. He is currently working at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, as a Research Associate with the Goddard Earth Sciences Technology and Research (GESTAR). His research interests include active and passive microwave remote sensing, with a focus on electromagnetic modeling of vegetation and sea surface. He is part of the Science Algorithms team for the Aquarius instrument, where he has been working on the radiometer and radar scatterometer simulators.
