Andrea Neto received the Laurea degree (summa cum laude) in electronic engineering from the University of Florence, Italy, in 1994 and the Ph.D. degree in electromagnetics from the University of Siena, Italy, in 2000. Part of his Ph.D. was developed at the European Space Agency Research and Technology Center, Noordwijk, The Netherlands, where he worked for the antenna section for over two years.

In 2000-2001, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, working for the Sub-mm wave Advanced Technology Group. From 2002 to January 2010, he was Senior Antenna Scientist at TNO Defence, Security and Safety, The Hague, The Netherlands. In February 2010 he has been appointed Full Professor of Applied Electromagnetism at the EEMCS Department, of the Technical University of Delft, the Netherlands. His research interests are in the analysis and design of antennas, with emphasis on arrays, dielectric lens antennas, wideband antennas, EBG structures and THz antennas.

Prof. Neto was co-recipient of the H.A. Wheeler award for the best applications paper of the year 2008 in the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation. He was co-recipient of the best innovative paper prize at the 30th ESA Antenna Workshop in 2008. He was co-recipient of the best antenna theory paper prize at the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP) in 2010. In August 2011 he was awarded a 5 years starting grant from the European Research Council for Advanced THz antennas. He presently serves as associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and propagation and for IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters (AWPL).
