I have carried out research in the fields of Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), Net Energy Analysis (NEA), environmental management and sustainability analysis, both in the academic and private sectors, in Italy, Spain, the USA and the UK.

My main research interests and the core of my research activity to date have been in

  1. the theoretical improvement of existing approaches for environmental sustainability assessment, taking into account a wide range of viewpoints and methods, and
  2. their application to energy systems and the development of strategic energy supply and transport scenarios.
