Gregory James Mazzaro was born in Bronxville, NY and raised in Carmel, NY. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Boston University in 2004, a Master of Science from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 2006, and a Ph.D. from North Carolina State University in 2009. While working towards his doctoral degree, Mr. Mazzaro interned at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Adelphi, MD during the summer of 2007. After graduating, he returned to ARL to work full-time as an Electronics Engineer from 2009 to 2013.
While at ARL, Dr. Mazzaro was a member of the Radio-Frequency (RF) Signal Processing and Modeling Branch of the Sensors and Electron Devices Directorate. His primary responsibilities were (a) to design, prototype, and evaluate RF circuits for linear ultra-wideband radar, (b) to design and conduct experiments for the exploitation of electronic properties of RF devices using nonlinear radar, and (c) to measure and catalogue the electromagnetic properties of soils and energetic materials, in the laboratory as well as in-situ.
Dr. Mazzaro has authored more than 90 publications and has given more than 30 technical talks at national conferences and workshops. He holds 7 patents. His present research focuses on studying the unintended behaviors of RF electronics illuminated by electromagnetic waves and on developing experimental radars for the remote detection and characterization of those electronics.
Dr. Mazzaro joined The Citadel as a professor of Electrical Engineering in the Fall of 2013. He has been an instructor for Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering, Electric Circuit Analysis, Electrical Laboratory, Principles of Electrical Engineering, Electronics Laboratory, Electromagnetic Fields, Advanced Topics in Electrical Engineering, Interference Control in Electronics, Antennas & Propagation, and RF Systems.
