He is a Physical Oceanographer, focused on water formation, dispersion and mixing processes. He work mainly in General Circulation Modelling, both in Polar Regions and in the Mediterranean seas. Actually his research is focused on dense water overflows and cascade processes characterizing the shelf-slope interactions, abyssal renewal variability and its correlation with climate change, stable isotopes multi-proxies study with seasonal to multi-decadal resolution and sea-ice formation processes in polynya area.

  • He takes part in many sea cruises in the Mediterranean Sea and in the Southern Ocean.
  • He is Co-Chair of iAnZone Steering Committee.
  • He is a lecturer in the Advanced Physical Oceanography at the School of Doctorate in “Environmental & Industrial Fluid Mechanics” of the University of Trieste.
  • He is a faculty member of the School of Doctorate in “Environmental Sciences” of the University Cà Foscari of Venice
