    PROFILE

    Roberto was born in Naples, Italy, on 14 Nov 1975. He received the Dr. Eng. degree with honors in Telecommunication Engineering from the Università degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II”, Italy, in October 2001. In June 2005 he received the Ph.D. in Information Engineering from the Università degli Studi del Sannio, Benevento, Italy defending a thesis entitled “Destriping MODIS data using the Field-Of-View Overlapping Method” in which he proposed an innovative approach for the striping removal in rotating mirror instruments. His PhD thesis has been published on IEEE Transaction on Geoscience and Remote Sensing. His research lied in the field of the statistical signal processing. 

    In 2005 he has entered a post-doc program at Università degli Studi del Sannio as Primary Investigator on Change Detection Scheme for very high resolution remote sensed data coordinating the activities of Dipartimento di Ingegneria delle Telecomunicazioni (Università degli Studi del Sannio, Benevento-Italy) and MARSec (Mediterranean Agency for Remote Sensing and Environmental Control, Benevento-Italy). 

    In the same year he also started a collaboration with the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC University of Wisconsin, Madison) for the design of a new collocation procedure for the MODIS and AIRS (onboard AQUA platform) remote sensing instruments. 

    In 2006 he started collaborating with Alcatel Alenia Space - Italy on the Ground Segment Facilities for the Korean EO Satellite KOMPSAT-5 space program. As advisor, he has been responsible for the development and the integration of the SAR Processing Facility within the K-5 Ground Segment.
