my work

I am currently a hardware/firmware developer at Caleffi S.p.A., a manufacturer of high-quality components for heating, plumbing, air conditioning and renewables systems, for domestic and industrial plants

Before, I have been R&D software and firmware developer at 3ntr, an additive manifacturing company specialized in 3d printers, for 1 year, and a researcher at Department of Electronic and Telecommunications (DET) of Politecnico di Torino (Torino, Italy) for 4 years. As a reseracher, my work was mainly focused on radar meteorology, other radar technologies, wireless sensor network (WSN) for environmental monitoring, including forest fire monitoring and GNSS reflectometry.

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. (EST) 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, RSG, lead by Prof. Giovanni Perona) and at EST. During this periodo, I was mainly involved in projects, researches and studies about new technologies for forest fire monitoring using sensors operating in different spectral bands.

Between June 2008 and May 2009 I have been a software programmer and analysit at a softwarehouse operating in Turin.

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

I was a lecturer at Politecnico di Torino in the following courses:
- Electromagnetic Fields (2008, 2017-2019)
- Radio Planning (2017-2018)
- Radar and Remote Sensing (2014-2015)
- Numerical computation (2012


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)

scientific cooperation

Member of Editorial Board of the journal “Environment and Natural Resources Research”ENRR since 2015 and of the journal “Environmental Management and Sustainable Development” EMSD since 2016.

Official reviewer of the journals Atmosphere, Forests, Sensors, Applied Science, Water since 2017 and Applied System Innovation (ASI), since 2018. All these journals are published by MDPI (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute).
