My educational achievements are: graduated in Phisics (UNI) and passed in Cambridge English Preliminary-PET Certificate (corresponding to the third CEFR level B1).
He contributed in the fields of the European Commission project ENC-0013-I(s) with applications of methods of predictive deconvolution applied to geophysical data in the years 1986-1989; he collaborated in the frame of the Program of international collaboration "Adriatic Scientific COoperative Program" - ASCOP to oceanographic archiving of the data acquired in Adriatic and to statistical analysis; he participated to the projects of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in the field of the "Progetto Finalizzato Sistemi Informatici e Calcolo Parallelo" (Computer Systems and Parallel Computation) in the development and analysis of algorithm results and vector and parallel models applied to geophysics and oceanography in the years that go, for the first project, from 1990 to 1992 and, for the second one, from 1993 to 1994; he produced during the SINAPSI program, established between the MURST and the Italian National Research Council (CNR), results and applications to the Mediterranean ecosystem, consisting in seasonal and interannual modelling of the biogeochemical cycles in Mediterranean, during the years of the program 2000-2003.
He participated to the following European Commission projects: MERMAIDS II in the area of the three-dimensional trophodynamical models of the Mediterranean basin in the years 1993-1996; ADIOS in the fields of the impact of atmospheric nutrient inputs and of the alteration of the pevailing oligotrophic cycles, during the period of three year spanned by the project, 2001-2003; CO2GeoNet in the field of the evaluation of the carbon dioxide and methane leakages from the marine floor, specifically in areas of the Gulf of Trieste, and in the field of development and application of numerical solvers for evaluating the impact of the CO2 and of CH4 leakages, particularly in the oxygenated and anoxic parts of the sediment - the activity of this Network of Excellence has covered the years from 2004 to 2009 and at presently continues as an international association participated by OGS.
He has been principal investigator in the following projects of the European Comission: MTP II MATER - MAss Transfer and Ecosystem Response in the activity "Seasonal and interannual variability of nitrogen and phosphorus budgets" during the years 1996-1999; MFSTEP - Mediterranean ocean Forecasting System: Toward Environmental Predictions in the line of research "Ocean Colour OSSEs for the Mediterranean Sea" in the theme The Observing System Simulation Experiment, that has been developed during the years 2003-2006. He coordinated OGS activities in the frame of the project PRISMA2 of the CONISMA on the "Biogeochimical food webs in northern Adriatic", years from 1996 to 2000 and carried out research activities in the project VECTOR, directed by CONISMA, for what pertains the geochemical influence of the dissolved inorganic carbon in the sea and the CO2 fluxes between the sea and the atmosphere, during the years 2006-2009.
Presently, he is the scientific contact researcher for the OGS in the RISCS project - Research into Impacts and Safety in CO2 Storage: the contributions by OGS go from the search of high level scanarios to the acquisition and interpretation of physical and biochemical data; from the numerical development of integrated models for studying the evolution of the biogeochemical system to the dissemination of the obtained results and of the relevant interpretations. In the same project he is principal investigator in the numerical modelling of the marine processes in the field "Model system development" in the area - Assessing impacts - numerical solutions.
