He was born in Florence, Italy, in 1972. He graduated in Telecommunications Engineering at the University of Florence, Italy, in 2002. Since 2003, he worked with Microwave Remote Sensing Group at IFAC (Institute of Applied Physics ‘Nello Carrara’, Florence – Italy). His activity deals with the processing of SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) data as geocoding and radiometric calibration, in order to investigate geophysical parameters of land surface (soil moisture content, snow cover, vegetation). In March 2007, he obtained the Ph.D. in “Methods and technologies for environmental monitoring” at Basilicata University. The main objective of the Ph. D. research was the contribution of microwave remote sensing data for monitoring of flooding risk areas, by means of soil moisture and snow cover maps retrieved from SAR data. He was also involved in the European projects FLOODMAN and ENVISNOW. Recently, he was involved in others Europen projects that investigate the sensitivity of bistatic interaction models with bare soils and CORE-H2O. More recently, his research activity considered the investigation of polar ice at DOME-C area (South Pole) by means of passive microwave sensors (AMSR-E). Actually he is involved in Italian Space Agency (ASI) projects for floods forecast (NOWCASTING) and Cosmo-SkyMed applications (Hydro-Cosmo).
