Francesco is a GIS developer and applied statistician with a passion for data science and geospatial modeling. Through his multidisciplinary studies and years of work experience, he has developed a true passion for geospatial modeling and analysis applied to a variety of socio-environmental systems. Some of his efforts have also been directed toward bridging the gap between science and stakeholders by improving existing visualization and display approaches to assist with forecasting, prevention, and mitigation of environmental impacts. Currently, he is leading and coordinating the development of a suite of geo-processing tools and GIS software/web applications on telecoupling.
