Curriculum Vitae

Biography

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, in the Climate & Ecosystem Sciences Division (CESD), in collaboration with Dr. Haruko Murakami Wainwright.

I was born in Verona, Italy and I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Trento, Italy, in 2008 and 2011, respectively. I hold a joint Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Iceland and in Information and Communication Technologies from the University of Trento obtained in 2015.

Before joining CESD, I spent one year as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Signal Processing Laboratory of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty at the University of Iceland (2015-2016).

Since the beginning of my research career, my interests focus on remote sensing image analysis and processing with applications in environmental monitoring.
My expertise is on the development of methodologies for mining and analysis of optical and hyperspectral imagery data. Following a strictly interdisciplinary approach, I’m employing knowledge from a wide spectrum of disciplines such as image/signal processing, mathematical morphology, advance pattern recognition and machine learning.
