Cecilia Cappellin received the M.Sc. degree in telecommunication engineering from the University of Siena, Italy, in 2004 and the industrial PhD degree in 2007, from the Technical University of Denmark. She joined TICRA in 2004. In her Ph.D. project she developed an antenna diagnostics technique for spherical near-field antenna measurements, which was later implemented into the DIATOOL software package. Since 2010, she is the manager of TICRA’s consultancy division. She is actively involved and responsible for TICRA’s software support and software training, customer-specific software development, analysis and design of antenna systems as well as internally funded R&D projects.
