  • Ph.D. University of California - Santa Barbara, 2002

Research Interests

By merging advanced circuit/antenna design with multiphysics modeling, Dr. Maccarini pioneered low-cost passive sensors to noninvasively measure deep temperature for various diagnostic applications. By combining novel engineering solutions with immunotherapy/thermo-drugs, his collaborative efforts aim to more effective cancer therapies.
