PhD in Physics (University of Rome ``La Sapienza") 1988-1991. Researcher (1990), associate Professor (2000) and then full Professor (2018) in Condensed Matter Physics. He published as main author or co-author more than 200 publications on international journals (including conference proceedings), cited more than 8000 times (May 2023) in the literature. Current h-index is 46 ( ISI WoK ) or 49 ( Google Scholar ). He is presently included in the "top italian scientist" list of the Virtual Italian Academy . Invited speaker at several international conferences and referee for many scientific journals. Chairman of the XAFS14 and LAM14 international conferences, he is co-editor of 3 books of proceedings, one EPJ Special Topic issue and 1 book about GnXAS. He has been, several times, invited scientist at SSRL , ESRF, and in Japan (Aichi, Toyama, Kumamoto) and invited professor at University of Paris-Sud (XI), UPMC (Paris VI, international chair), Rennes. Past president of the Italian Synchrotron Radiation Society and past chair of the International X-ray Absorption Society ( IXAS). He participated to panels for scientific awards, selecting personnel in Universities, INFM and CNR, and for project evaluation (national and international including ESF and NSF). His main research activity regarded the development and the execution of X-ray absorption, scattering and photoemission experiments performed at international synchrotron radiation facilities (PULS/PWA Frascati (I), LURE, Orsay (F), SSRL, Stanford (CA), ESRF, Grenoble (F), Elettra (I)) and FELs. He has been awarded in August 2015 of the "outstanding achievement award" (Stern prize) of the International X-ray Absorption Society IXAS. He is part of international boards and leaded several original research projects in this field. He currently coordinates the activity of the XAS group at Camerino. He is co-author of the advanced GnXAS multiple-scattering data-analysis method, available for the scientific community through the GnXAS website. He is currently engaged in research about matter under extreme conditions and on materials for energy applications. He has been responsible of the TIMEX project for the exploitation of the free electron laser Fermi@Elettra source, and consultant (2007-2013) at the ELETTRA/FERMI synchrotron radiation and FEL facility (XAFS beamline and TIMEX). He has been responsible of the Italian unit within the European project SIRBATT for studying and developing new materials for Li-ion batteries. He has been involved in several national research projects (PRIN). He coordinated (2017-2023) the PhD programs in Physics, Earth and Materials Sciences at the University of Camerino. He is currently responsible of the Physics Division and he is delegate of the Rector for the international research networks.
