attained the PhD title in Mechanical, Management and Energy Engineering at the University of L'Aquila (UNIVAQ), Italy, in 2011.  

In order to choose the proper course of study, I attended – after a selection for merit –, the XIX university orientation course at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa (Italy) (1997) (181st World University Rankings – 2021).  

Following the achieving of the PhD, I was a Research Fellow at UNIVAQ until 2017, before becoming a Researcher in October of the same year. Previously, I was a scholarship holder both in 2006 and 2011 at UNIVAQ. 

I carried out research and/or teaching periods abroad at prestigious Institutions, such as:

Université Laval (Québec city, Canada), Institut National du Patrimoine (Paris, France), Arts et Métiers ParisTech, I2M - Institut de Mécanique et d’Ingénierie - (Bordeaux, France), Escola superior de Conservacion e Restauracion de bens culturais de Galicia (Pontevedra, Spain), Tomsk Polytechnic University (Tomsk, Russia), Universidad de Sevilla - Facultad de Bellas Artes - Degree en Conservación Restauración de Bienes Culturales (Seville, Spain), National Tsing Hua University - Department of Chemical Engineering (Taiwan, ROC), Universidad de Cantabria - Departamento de Tecnología Electrónica and Ing. Sistemas y Automática (Santander, Spain), Universidad Politecnica de Valencia - Facultad de Bellas Artes - Degree en Conservación Restauración de Bienes Culturales (Valencia, Spain).  

From December 2016 I'm an Invited-Scientific Researcher at Tomsk Polytechnic University (Tomsk, Russia).

I was a member of several Scientific Committees in International Congresses. I also am an Editor of Mathematical Problems in Engineering (Hindawi), Infrastractures (MDPI), and Sensors (MDPI).

From December 2020, I'm the Editor-in-Chief of Quantitative InfraRed Thermography (QIRT) Journal (Taylor & Francis).  

I'm deeply involved in non-destructive evaluation and characterization of materials, especially using optical and infrared vision non-destructive testing techniques, numerical simulations centred on heat transfer phenomena (by Comsol Multiphysics), development of ad hoc scripts in Matlab environment. In these research areas, I authored or co-authored more than 200 articles in Journals and International Conferences. I also have written five chapters in Books. 

I was both chairman and member of Organizing Committees of various International Conferences.  

I'm currently acting as Reviewer of 40 scientific journals and I organized Special Issues as Editor for: Journal of Physics, Applied Sciences (MDPI), Advances in OptoElectronics, Sensors (MDPI) and Advances in Mechanical Engineering (AIME).  

I'm a collaborator and local contact person in International research projects. I was a member of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN), Italy, as Associated Technologist within group 5, and I currently am a member of the Associazione Italiana di Fisica Tecnica (AIFT) and the Associazione Italiana Prove Non-distruttive - Monitoraggio Diagnostica (AIPnD). I received awards - mainly focused on scientific recognition - from UNIVAQ, National Tsing Hua University (Taiwan) (351 – 400th World University Rankings – 2021), and Universidad de Cantabria (Spain).  

I was a supervisor / co-supervisor of 12 Degree Theses, as well as a member of Evaluation Committees of Ms and PhD Theses. 

From 2013, I'm an Adjunct Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts of L'Aquila (Italy); in the latter case, I'm particularly involved in the five-year single-cycle School of Restoration. In October 2020 I became Associate Professor at UNIVAQ after obtaining the National Scientific Qualification (ASN) in the competitive sector 09/C2 (Technical Physics and Nuclear Engineering).

I also am a member of the Academic Board of the PhD in Industrial and Information Engineering and Economics (UNIVAQ). 

Some time ago I took the third-level of qualification as technician in Thermography, with specialization in the Civil Engineering, Architecture and Cultural Heritage sector.

Finally, I've a consolidated experience in thermographic diagnostics of composite materials made by natural and non-natural fibers (not only fabricated for the Civil Engineering field).
