    Background

    Received both his MSc degree in Electronic Engineering and a PhD in Geo-Information - EO Remote Sensing from the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy. For two years during his doctoral studies, he was a research consultant and visiting scientist at ESA-ESRIN, where he also contributed to educational and training activities. His research was focused on the processing and exploitation of SAR data for the retrieval of bio-physical parameters, and InSAR-DInSAR techniques. He has also experience in optical-Xs medium and hi-re data processing, Geographical Information Systems and 3D GIS Virtual Reality. Since December 2006 he has been working as contractor at the European Space Agency-ESRIN, providing technical and scientific expertise for the development of ESA SAR toolboxes (NEST and PolSARpro), SAR R&D projects, and supporting the organization of ESA Advanced Training Courses in Remote Sensing and International Workshops.
