graduation in Biology 1985 – Rome University “La Sapienza”. Researcher in ENEA Casaccia Center (Rome).

From 1985 up to 1990, his interests were directed to the human cancer studies with particular reference to new methods for early detection. From 1991 up to 1995, he started to undertake studies for the genetic improvement of crops relevant for agriculture. 

From 1995 up to 2008 his activity turned to the aquatic ecology with particular reference to the interaction between aquaculture activities and on environmental changes in the coastal resulting from impacts of anthropogenic and fisheries activities. Starting from 2009 up today he was active in the frame of several research and technical projects for ENEA, independently and in cooperation with various Italian and foreign companies, Institutions and Agencies, based on integrated and sustainable water resource management, with specific reference to water availability, access, distribution, monitoring, treatment and reuse, also through the integration of new technologies providing energy resources. He has also acquired, in the course of national and EU SRT&D projects, experience in the elaboration, presentation and management of research and technology transfer projects.
