Biography

Enrique A. Navarro-Camba has a degree in Physics and a PhD in Physics from the University of Valencia, in 1988 and 1992 respectively, directed by D. Vicente Such Belenguer, Professor of Applied Physics.  From August 1988 to January 1989 he worked at Grupo de Mecánica del Vuelo S.A. (GMV S.A., Madrid).  He joined the University of Valencia in 1989, where he worked on R+D projects for the University of Valencia and Radiación y Microondas S.A. (RYMSA). He was a scholarship holder of the Generalitat Valenciana and the Ministry of Education and Science. He has been an assistant professor in 1991, associate professor in 1994, associate professor in 1997, and professor in 2010.

He was awarded a grant by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and worked at the Communications Research Laboratory at McMaster University (Ontario, Canada) in 1994 and 1995, where he improved the development of the non-orthogonal-FDTD (Finite Difference Time Domain) technique. He worked on the analysis of passive devices for beam-forming networks (Spar-Aerospace, Quebec) and planar technology antennas (RIM-Blackberry, Waterloo).

At the University of Valencia Professor Navarro teaches subjects related to electromagnetism, electromagnetic waves, microwaves, antennas and advanced communications. He teaches undergraduate, doctoral, graduate and master's courses at the Faculty of Physics, Faculty of Chemistry and School of Engineering. He has served on several committees at the University of Valencia, and his teaching contributed mainly to the University of Valencia's Telecommunications degrees, the Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering, and the Inter-University Master's Degree (University of Valencia - Pompeu Fabra University) Advanced Sciences of Modern Telecommunications. 

In 1993 he joined the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory, and later on all the IEEE and IEE (now IET) journals on antennas, microwaves and propagation. Over the years he served on the Editorial Board of the world's most prestigious journals in Electromagnetism, Communications and Geoelectromagnetism: IEEE Microwave and Guided Wave Letters, IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters, IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, IGARS, PIERS, Electronics Letters, IEE Proceedings on Microwave Antennas and Propagation (IET-MAP), Optics Express, ETRI Journal, International Journal of Electronics, Bioelectromagnetics,... Reviews projects from NASA and the United States Department of Energy (DOE).

He worked in more than 27 competitive research projects of national level, of the Junta de Andalucía, and Generalitat Valenciana, collaborating within the research group of Professor Juan A. Morente of the University of Granada and the Austrian Space Agency.

At the University of Valencia he is in charge of the antenna measurement system, Anechoic Chamber, a large installation covering 5m x 5m x 8m, with near-field measurement and near-to-far-field transformation. He also maintains the WWLLN-Valencia (World Wide Lightning Location Network) measurement station that records electrical activity of atmospheric origin at a global level, in collaboration with Prof. Holzworth of the University of Washington. 

Dr. Navarro's research interests focus on all aspects of electromagnetism, computational electromagnetism, electromagnetic waves, antennas and their measurement.

He is Guest Editor of the MDPI Electronics Journal:
