In 2001-2011 he has been Research Associate at Remote Sensing Group of Politecnico di Torino, where he worked on atmospheric profiles using GPS signal in radio-occultation situation. In 2005 he started his research about fire risk forecasting and forest fires monitoring and early-warning in alpine regions. He has a ten year experience in video production, as he is founder of the production company Due Monete, and in movie festivals organization, as he worked as technical director and hospitality office director at Cinemambiente International Film Festival and MonFilmFest. He is now Research Associate at Marine Science Institute of the National Research Council, where he works in 3D reconstruction of sea surface, marine waves, underwater environment and marine organisms detection using computer vision techniques and sea surface currents monitoring using HF Radars.
