Field: Smart Cities and Regions

Main Research: 3D city modelling, energy modelling and urban planning

Experience: My main research topics are in the field of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and spatial data integration, with particular focus on virtual city modelling and their energy-related topics.

Born in 1977, I completed in 2002 my studies in environmental engineering at the University of Padova (Italy). In 2007-2008 I moved to Berlin to carry out the largest part of my doctoral research work dealing with spatial data integration issues. I received in 2009 my Ph.D. in Geomatics as a joint doctorate between the Technische Universität Berlin and the University of Padova.

Before joining AIT in March 2014, I was working as independent consultant at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Trento, Italy) in the 3D Optical Metrology unit.
In 2013 I spent 7 months as visiting researcher at the Technische Universität München (Germany).

I am currently working group chair in the ISPRS Technical Commission 4 (WG 4.10), focussing on advanced geospatial applications for Smart Cities and Regions.
