Gianandrea’s research activity aims to improve Maritime Transportation by means of Decision Support Systems. Together with colleagues of the TESSA and IONIO projects, he designed and implemented VISIR, a ship routing model for safer and more efficient navigation, and presently leads its scientific and operational development. As a model, VISIR’s source code is made publicly available following the guidelines of the Free and Open Source Software. As an operational system, VISIR already has an operational implementation in the Mediterranean Sea.

Gianandrea is the scientific coordinator for CMCC of the Horizon 2020 project AtlantOS, and leads a Task for ship routing cost and hazard mapping of the Atlantic Ocean. Among his interests is also the environmental impact of maritime transportation, especially in reference to climate change.

Furthermore, he was responsible for the teaching activities within the educational project OTTIMA (which in the time span of two years succeeded to train (at the two venues of Lecce and Naples) 89 professionals in the field of operational oceanography and maritime safety.

Gianandrea holds a PhD in Theoretical Physics issued from the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin – Germany (2005) and a MSc degree in Physics from the Università degli Studi di Pisa – Italy (2000).

He loves nature, sports, and reading.
