After his Master Degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Rome La Sapienza, he was hired in 1990 at the Operation Center of the European Space Agency in Germany (ESA/ESOC) in the area of mission analysis and orbit control manoeuvre optimization. He then moved to precise orbit determination and to orbit and attitude control and continued his career at ESA/ESTEC in The Netherlands. He moved to Toulouse, France, in 1997, where he got a Post-graduate Master in Applied Remote Sensing and Image Processing followed by a PhD on the subject of optical-radar remote sensing for the monitoring of surface deformation (University of Toulouse Paul Sabatier). In France, he was first employed by CESBIO (1998) and later by CNES (1999-2001), working as a Project Manager for the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters, conducting R&D activities for remote sensing applications to disaster management and natural risk monitoring, interferometric monitoring of several seismic areas and providing training courses in Earth Observation. After a short period at Italian Space Agency (2001) as a technical interface ASICNES for the cooperation COSMO-SkyMed / Pleiades, he joined ESA/ESRIN, in Italy, working in Earth Observation applications; since 2007, he coordinates the Education and Training Activities in Earth Observation.
