Associate professor of Materials Science and Technology at the Dept. of Engineering "Enzo Ferrari", Modena (Italy) and President of the master Degree in "Materials Engineering" at the Dept. of Engineering "Enzo Ferrari", Modena (Italy). Member of the technical committees IEC - TC27 Industrial electroheating and electromagnetic processing.
His research activity is mainly focussed on the thermal applications of microwaves, trying to develop new processes or to enhance materials properties. During last decade he has been using commercial electromagnetic modelling software in order to design new microwave applicators for high and low temperature heat treatments and microwave plasmas. Recently, he dedicated intensively to the development of microwaves applications to metals, high entropy alloys and intermetallics. He is author of more than 150 indexed papers, as well as of 8 Italian and international patents.
