Main field of research is dynamics and thermal control of space systems with particular interest in scientific payloads for planetary missions, mechanical and thermal design of probes and mission data analysis .
He collaborated with the Huygens Descent Trajectory Working Group focusing on the reconstruction of Huygens probe entry and descent trajectory in Titan atmosphere through sensor fusion with extended Kalman filtering and with the Attitude Reconstruction Working Group which goal was the identification of attitude parameters during the parachuted descent of the Huygens probe
He was Mechanical and thermal design co-ordinator for HASI (Huygens Atmospheric Sructure Instrument) balloon flight campaigns in 2002 and 2003 as well for SORA ( Sounding Radar) flight campaign from Svalbard island in 2009
He was member of several thermal working groups in developing instrument for space missions.
Furthermore he collaborated to development, realisation and qualification of mechanical systems for the following scientific missions:
WAC : Wide Angle Camera for ESA Rosetta mission
PFS : Planetary Fourier Spectrometer for ESA Mars Express mission
HASI : Huygens Atmospheric Structure Instrument for NASA Huygens Cassini mission
IPSE : Italian Package for Scientific Experiments for Mars Sample Return missions
SIMBIO SYS : Scientific suite for ESA BEPICOLOMBO Mission
2006: Invited Visiting professor at National Institute of Aerospace in Langley, Virginia (USA)
