    Brief description of the research activities:

    His research activities include both theoretical and applicative aspects related to electromagnetics: single- and multi-polarization models to describe sea surface scattering with and without oil slicks and metallic targets, fading and speckle models, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sea surface waves imaging, multi-polarization SAR to retrieve coastline, spatial resolution enhancement of microwave radiometer measurements, Global Navigation Satellite Systems - Reflectometry (GNSS-R), SAR polarimetry to retrieve crop phenological stages, wave polarization and interpolation of stochastic fields. The theoretical models he developed to deal with single- and multi-polarization sea surface scattering with and without oil slicks and metallic targets resulted in applicative techniques that triggered new added-values SAR products.

    His research activities are well documented by about 50 scientific papers published on peer-reviewed journals and more than 90 scientific papers published on refereed conferences.
