Meetings scheduled on the basis of personal appointments 

He is Associate Professor of Energy and Thermal Sciences at University of Genoa (Italy), where he previously served as Assistant Professor (from 2012 until 2014) . He carries out researches on different topics, such as heat transfer using nanofluids, energy efficiency in buildings and industrial processes, energy planning and analysis of energy markets.

He cooperates with important world leading research institutions, such us University of California Riverside (Prof. Vafai) and ETH Zurich (Prof. Poulikakos), where he was visiting researcher. He is author of numerous papers published on world leading peer reviewed journals in the area of energy and heat transfer.

Before starting the academic carrier, he gained important experience in the industry as Business Analyst at Value Partners Management Consulting and as Senior Business Analyst at ENEL SpA, working on business strategy issues.

He graduated in Mechanical Engineering at the Seconda Università degli Studi di Napoli, where he  also got a Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering, under the supervision of Prof. Manca.
