Born in Milazzo (Italy), October 12th 1972. Civil Engineer. PhD in Agroforestry and Environmental Engineering. From 2000 Researcher at ENEA, involved in R&S activity in the fields of 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 Remote Sensing and GIS applications to environmental studies and analyses (Land Cover/Land Use, Land monitoring and planning, Landscape metrics and indices, Spatial analysis, DSS-Decision Support Systems). Author and co-author of several scientific publications and contribution to conferences in the above mentioned subject areas.

Reviewer of the international journals "International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation" (Elsevier), "European Journal of Remote Sensing" (AIT) and "Land Degradation & Development" (John Wiley & Sons). 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:

  • International Conference on Advanced Geographic Information Systems, Applications, and Services - GEOProcessing 2012
  • International Workshop on "Geographical Analysis, Urban Modeling, Spatial Statistics" (GEOG-AN-MOD) 2011 and 2012.
  • Cities, Technologies and Planning (CTP) 2011 and 2012.


  • Earth Observation (Aerial and Satellite Remote Sensing): applications to environmental studies and land analysis (Classification, Land Cover/Land Use, Land monitoring and planning, Landscape metrics and indices).
  • Geographical Information Systems (GIS): applications to territorial and environmental issues (Land analysis and management, Urban planning, Decision support systems).
  • Design and development of digital aerophotogrammetry techniques and automatic stereo-correlation algorithms to extract buildings heights in urban areas.
  • Integration of digital aero-photogrammetry techniques and LiDAR (laser altimetry) surveys to generate accurate digital elevation models (DTM and DSM) over urban areas
  • EO and GIS techniques to support seismic evaluation and multi-risk assessment in urban areas

running projects:

  • SIMURAI (Strumenti Integrati per il MUlti Risk Assessment territoriale in ambienti urbani antropizzatI)
  • SIT_MEW (Sistema Integrato di Telecomunicazioni a larga banda per la gestione del territorio e delle emergenze in caso di calamità naturali comprensivo di Metodologie di Early Warning)
