I'm interested in the variability of the gamma-ray sky for years. His main field of research is related to analysis techniques for gamma-ray instruments in the field of time-domain and real-time astrophysics, background rejection techniques for both X- and gamma-ray instruments, simulation of detectors for X and gamma-ray space missions, data analysis of gamma-ray sources. He has coordinated the development of the AGILE Science Alert System for detection of γ-ray transients. The speed of the pipeline has been crucial to the discovery of the variability of the Crab Nebula, for which the AGILE Team won the AAS Bruno Rossi prize 2012. He coordinates the AGILE flare advocate team. Participation in national and international programs: AGILE, SIMBOL-X, NHXM, WSO/UV, ECHO, GAMMA-LIGHT, Euclid, CTA, ATHENA, and ASTROGAM. He has been the first author and co-author of over 150 publications in refereed international journals (h-index=32). Since 2015 is the technical coordinator for INAF within the OpenPOWER Foundation. and since 2016 is the chair of the OpenPOWER for Physical Science Work Group and member of the OpenPOWER Foundation Technical Steering Committee Since 2012, he coordinates the On-Site Analysis and Real-Time Analysis of CTA. The Real-Time Analysis must be able to issue automated alerts on variable and transient astrophysical sources within 30 seconds with a data rate of a few GByte/s. Since 2007, he is the Software Coordinator of AGILE Team coordinating the development of data reduction and analysis tools, payload health monitoring and scientific pipelines. Since 2001, he is part of the AGILE System Team (assembly, integration, verification, calibration, launch campaign and commissioning). Development of Apps for mobile devices for outreach in astronomy.
