His expertise concerns high performance computing, grid & cloud computing and distributed data management. He has been a co-founder of the European Grid Forum (Egrid) which then merged into the Global Grid Forum (GGF), now Open Grid Forum (OGF). He was strongly involved in the EGEE (Enabling Grids for E-science) EU FP5-FP6 grid projects. He is the responsible for CMCC of the EU-FP7 IS-ENES1 and IS-ENES2 (InfraStructure for the European Network for Earth System modelling) projects. He was the responsible for ENES of the EU-FP7 EESI (European Exascale Software Initiative) project and for University of Salento (as PRACE Third Party) of the EU-FP7 EESI 2 project, also chairing in both cases the WCES (Weather, Climate and solid Earth Sciences) European Working Group. He is member of the ENES HPC Task Force. He is one of the key experts of the IESP project (International Exascale Software Project), whose main goal is the definition of the roadmap for a common, open source software infrastructure for scientific computing at exascale.
He is the author of more than 100 papers in referred journals on parallel & grid computing.
