Serving as Scientific Attache' at the Italian Embassy in London since the 1st of February 2022. 

Full Professor in Physics at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, and Honorary Research Fellow at Imperial College Grantham Institute for Climate Change, London.

An internationally known, top quality scientist, expert in the physics of the atmosphere, Earth-system modelling, meteorology, predictability, and climate science. Coordinator of the Centre for Climate Change studies and Sustainable Actions (3CSA), a joint venture of three top Italian Universities: ‘Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna‘ of Pisa, ‘Scuola Normale Superiore’ of Pisa, and ‘Istituto Studi Superiori IUSS’ of Pavia. Contributor to the Italian National Research Plan (PNR) 2021-2027, and key designer of a new Italian inter-university PhD program on climate change and sustainably (started on 1 November 2021; budget 4M euros, 105 students, 30 Universities). Engaged in outreach and education activities (often interviewed at Italian national television and radio programs on climate and extreme weather issues). Member of external advisor committees of major international research and operational centers. 

A very successful and impactful leader and manager of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Research Department between 1991 and 2018, with proven ability to bring together people from different backgrounds, and a member of the ECMWF Senior Management Team. A key contributor to the development of the ECMWF Earth-system model and prediction systems. A keen, engaged and committed supporter of ECMWF stakeholder communication activities. Responsible for the ECMWF partnership activities that led to the establishment of cooperation agreements with China, the United States National Weather Service, and the US National Centre for Atmospheric Research. A committed team player with a strong multidisciplinary educational background, teaching experience, effective communication skills and a strong publication record. Integrity, passion for work and intellectual curiosity, and genuine interest in teaching and mentoring are also key traits of my personality.
