I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Natural Resources, Faculty of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation. I received my Ph.D in Information and Communication Technology from the University of Trento, Italy, in 2016. In 2014, I was a visiting PhD student at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Rochester, New York State, USA, working on the fusion of airborne and terrestrial LiDAR data. In 2016, I was a visiting Post-Doc at the Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal, working on the superresolution of multiresolution multispectral remote sensing images. My research concentrates mainly on passive and active remote sensing and, in particular, on designing novel and automatic system architecture for large-scale environmental monitoring. My main research interests include remote sensing image processing, signal processing and pattern recognition with specific reference to classification and fusion of multisource remote sensing data (LiDAR data, hyperspectral, multispectral and high resolution optical images), multi-temporal image analysis, domain-adaptation methods and deep-learning models. Moreover, my research interests are also focused on the use of remote sensing data for sustainable development.
