Born in Milazzo (Italy), October 12th 1972. Civil Engineer. PhD in Agroforestry and Environmental Engineering. From 2000 Researcher at ENEA, involved in R&D activity in the field of Geomatics (Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems - GIS). From 2003 to 2008, Adjunct Professor of "Geographical Information Systems" (Faculty of Architecture "L. Quaroni", University of Rome "Sapienza").

Main interests in Geomatics applications to environmental studies and analyses: Remote Sensing and GIS for Land Cover/Land Use changes, Land monitoring and planning, Landscape metrics and indices, Spatial analysis and GIS-based Decision Support Systems (DSS).

Author and co-author of several scientific publications and contribution to conferences in the above mentioned subject areas. Reviewer for many international journals.

Affiliate to AIT (Italian Remote Sensing Association) and AIC (Italian Cartographic Association). ECDL GIS Certified Examiner.

Member of Programme Committee of the following International Conferences:

Co-Chair of the ASTER 2015 Workshop (Advances in information Systems and Technologies for Emergency preparedness and Risk assessment). Member of the Management Committee of TUD COST Action TU1306 "Cyberparks". Awards: Green Energy 2014 (Esri Italia)
