Master degree in Agricultural Science in 1999 at University of Florence. In 2003 he obtained first level master in “Applied Meteorology”.
He has participated in numerous projects on agrometeorology and agroclimatology, in particular studying the relationship between climate and viticulture and wheat ecosystem, as collaborator of the University of Florence and the Foundation for Climate and Sustainability.

Since 2005 he has been conducting research on the sustainable energy use of agroforestry biomass, on the study of systems for small-scale energy micro-cogeneration, on Life Cycle Assessment and on the territorial planning of renewable energies. From 2011 he follows projects related to precision agriculture.

Since 2012 he is a member of the board of directors of the Italian Association of Agrometeorology and since 2016 he is Director of the Foundation for Climate and Sustainability.

In 2017 he became a member of the Georgofili Academy.
