Manuel Musio obtained his Master’s degree in Computer Engineering at the University of Salento in April 2020, presenting a thesis entitled “Adjustment of Raw MARSIS Radargrams to Support Water Discovery Process”. The thesis concerns the use of both Artificial Neural Networks and deterministic approaches for water discovery process on MARSIS (European Space Agency) radargrams. During his thesis’ work he had the opportunity to collaborate with Roberto Orosei (member of INAF – Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica) and Giovanni Aloisio (member of the CMCC Strategic Council, Director of the CMCC Supercomputing Center and Full professor of Information Processing Systems at the Dept. of Innovation Engineering of the University of Salento, Lecce, Italy).
In June 2020, he started a collaboration with the Advanced Scientific Computing (ASC) division of the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC). His research focuses on resource manager and broker messaging systems applied to climate context through the use of Ophidia system.
