my work

I am currently a researcher at Department of Electronic and Telecommunications (DET) of Politecnico di Torino (Torino, Italy), and I am also member of the local research unit of CINFAI (Italian National Interuniversity Consortium the Physics of Atmospheres and Hydrospheres). My research interests are mainly focused on radar meteorology, other radar technologies and wireless sensor network (WSN) for environmental monitoring, including forest fire monitoring.

I received my PhD in Electronic and Communication Engineering in 2014 with a thesis on X-band mini weather radar. During my PhD period I was also an apprentice at Envisens Technologies s.r.l. within the project “Acquisizione del titolo di Dottore di Ricerca in Alto Apprendistato” with Regione Piemonte.

Since Novembre 2009 to December 2011 I was already a junior researcher at Politecnico di Torino (with the Remote Sensing Group lead by Prof. Giovanni Perona) and at Envisens Technologies. During this I was mainlu involved in projects, researches and studies about new technologies for forest fire monitoring using different sensors operating in different spectral bands.

Between June 2008 and May 2009 I have been a software programmer and analysit with a softwarehouse operating in Turin. sono stato analista programmatore presso una softwarehouse di Torino.

Since February 2008 to June 2008 I was a research collaborator at ISMB (Istituto Superiore Mario Boella) in Torino where I was involved in projects about forest fire and about analysis of remote sensed and satellite data.


Since 2016 I am member of European Geoscience Union (EGU)

Since 2014 I am member of Società Italiana di Elettromagnetismo (SIEM)

Since 2010 to 2012 I was member of International Sport Engineering Association (ISEA)
