Born in Parma (1986), graduated cum laude in mechanical engineering from the University of Parma (2011). Ph.D. in industrial engineering (2015), and then postdoctoral fellow (2015) in Technical Physics at the Department of Engineering and Architecture, University of Parma. He currently holds the position of RTDA Researcher (art. 24 c.3-a L. 240/10) - SC 09/C2 - SSD ING-IND/10, at the Department of Engineering and Architecture, University of Parma.

He obtained in 2018 the national scientific qualification for Professor of II fascia (2018) in Applied Physics (Sector 09/C2).

His research activity, both theoretical and experimental, focuses on convective heat transfer enhancement techniques mainly applied to the optimization of heat exchangers for the food industry. At the same time, his research activity has also been focused on the study, application and development of techniques for solving inverse heat conduction problems. Also active in the development of mathematical methods applied to the estimation of the local convective heat transfer coefficient.

He has taken part in collaborative projects involving the Technical Physics area of the University of Parma and other leading international research laboratories (Federal University of Santa Catarina, Université de Lorraine & CNRS, Universidade de Lisboa, University of Brighton, Technical University of Denmark, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro). He has spent periods abroad as an Invited Research Fellow (at LEMTA (Laboratoire d'Energétique et de Mécanique théorique et Appliquée, Université de Lorraine), at the Departamento de Matemática & CEMAT, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa and at the School of Computing, Eng. And Mathematics, University of Brighton, Brighton, UK). He has authored and/or co-authored 56 scientific publications and is a reviewer for several international scientific journals.
