Giuseppe A. Fabrizio received his B.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Adelaide, South Australia, in 1992 and 2000. Since 1993, Dr Fabrizio has been with Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG). From 2005 to 2015, he led the Electronic Warfare and Signal Processing section of the high frequency (HF) radar branch. In that role, he was responsible for the development and practical implementation of innovative electronic protection methods and robust adaptive  processing techniques to enhance the operational performance of Australia’s Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN). Dr Fabrizio was appointed to Group Leader of the Microwave Radar Systems Science and Technology Capability in DST Group in 2016 where he established the Multifunction Aperture Grand Challenge Program under Next Generation Technologies Fund. He was promoted to Research Leader of the Surveillance System Branch in 2020. In his current position, Dr Fabrizio has responsibility for all facets of research and development in active and passive radar systems for surveillance and imaging in surface and airborne applications, Radio Frequency (RF) signature measurement, prediction and analysis as well as Electro-Optical (EO) sensing and hyper spectral imaging systems. Dr Fabrizio is a Fellow of the IEEE and is the principal author of over 60 peer-reviewed journal and conference publications. He is twice the co-recipient of the prestigious M. Barry Carlton Award for the best paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems (AES). In 2007, he received the DSTG Science and Engineering Excellence award for contributions to robust adaptive array processing transitioned to operational capability in JORN. He was seconded on a DSTG Science Fellowship to pursue collaborative research at La Sapienza University in Rome, Italy, where he delivered the first of many radar tutorials in the national and international IEEE Radar Conference series. He is an Australian representative of the IEEE International Radar Systems Panel and is an AES Society Distinguished Lecturer. He has served as President of the AES Society (2018-2019) and is currently the Chair of the IEEE Fellows Evaluation Panel. Dr Fabrizio has collaborated with multiple international defence agencies under the auspices of TTCP and Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreements and has represented Australia in numerous NATO SET task group activities. He has engaged extensively with private industry, including international primes and Australian small-to-medium enterprise industries, and has collaborated with several academic institutions in Australia and abroad. Dr. Fabrizio received the distinguished IEEE Fred Nathanson Memorial Radar Award in 2011 for his contributions to radar signal processing. His is the sole author of the text “High Frequency Over-the-Horizon Radar –Fundamental Principles, Signal Processing and Practical Applications”, McGraw-Hill, NY, 2013.
