In 2015 he gets a PhD in electronics and communication engineering at Politecnico di Torino (Italy) and receives a university award as one of the best Phd candidates of the cycle. He receives the “diplôme d'ingénieur” at INP, in Grenoble (France), in 2008, and the Master of Science in Communication Engineering at Politecnico di Torino, summa cum laude, in 2010, obtaining an award as best graduate student of the year. In 2010 he spends six months in the PLAN group, at the University of Calgary (Canada). Afterwards, he works as a researcher at the Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (ISMB), Torino, in the navigation technologies area. In 2013 he spends six months as visiting student at the European Space Agency (ESA), in The Netherlands.

His research interests cover the field of signal processing and simulation, applied to telecommunications and satellite positioning and navigation. In particular, his work deals the design and development of innovative architectures, techniques and algorithms for GPS and Galileo receivers, both professional high performance and commercial mass-market. Recently, he focused on carrier phase positioning and on ionospheric scintillations monitoring. He is involved in several research projects, funded by ESA and by the European Commission. In 2015 he took part in the XXXI Italian scientific expedition to Antarctica.
