I have recently pursued my PhD on Forest Ecology at the Tuscia University of Viterbo.
The research activities were dedicated to statistical analyses and techniques for forest volume estimation and stand structural classification using airborne laser scanner data. I’m interested in research in the area of forestry and forest management in particular on that research aimed at improving the precision of forest inventory estimates coupling aerial laser scanner data with forest inventory data.
From 2009 to 2013 I was involved in the FORSYS (Forest Management Decision Support Systems) COST action. My specific support was the identification, analysis and evaluation of knowledge management tools suitable for forest DSS. I am now member of the Community of Practice (CoP) on Forest Management Decision Support Systems.
