In charge of analysis and validation of the regional climate model employed at ENEA for the Euro-Mediterranean area. Current research interests are focused on the assessment of uncertainty of state-of–the-art climate models in reproducing climate processes at both global and local scales. Particular attention is also paid in providing climate information tailored on the end-users needs in the energy, tourism, agriculture sectors. He has participated to several EU projects: SPECS, EUPORIAS (as ENEA PI and WP leader in the vulnerability assessment framework workpackage), CLIM-RUN, IMPACT2C, CIRCE, AMMA, SINGULAR and PERSEUS EU projects mainly in the WP on climate modelling activity and analysis.
