I am a research scientist who designs data-driven techniques for visual understanding in the Φ-lab at ESA/ESRIN.

My work is at the crossroads of statistics, machine learning, image processing, computer vision, and now quantum computing. I am interested in tackling practical problems that arise in Earth observation, to bring solutions to current environment and population challenges. For current works, check the resources on learning beyond labels or my latest publications.

I am an associate editor of the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL). I co-organise the CVPR Earth Vision worskhop series (this year’s edition: CVPR’2023/EarthVision’23 workshop) and the ESA-ECMWF Machine Learning for Earth System Observation and Prediction workshop series (last year’s edition: ML4ESOP’2022).
