He was Director of the School for Higher-grade Electronics Technicians of the University of Florence in 1990-93. From 1994 to 2004 he has been Chairman of the Telecommunications Engineering Degree of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Florence. Since 2001 he is Member of the Executive Board of CNIT (Italian University Consortium for Telecommunications). The professional and academic experience has been focused in the fields of the telecommunications systems and the digital processing of signals, where he has published 6 books, more than 300 papers in national and international journals and conferences and more than 40 technical research reports. He has been responsible of over 50 research contracts with the Italian National Research Council, Italian Space Agency, European Union and industries. He has been responsible as a Prime Contractor of a research contract with the European Space Agency in 1984‑86 on the application of advanced digital signal processing techniques on board the satellites. During the academic year 1987‑88 he has been on leave from the University of Florence at the European Space Research and Technology Centre of the European Space Agency, Noordwijk, Netherlands, carrying out research on the integration of satellite systems with the terrestrial cellular network for mobile communications. He has been the Chairman of the EU COST Project 227 on “Integrated Space-Terrestrial Mobile Networks” and of the EU COST Action 252 “Evolution of satellite personal communications from second to future generation systems”. He has served as an expert for EU in the area of Advanced Communications Technologies. He has been the Chairman of the Satellite Integrated Communications Networks Workshop (1986), the Software Radio Technologies and Services Workshop (2000), the Fifth European Workshop on Mobile/Personal Satcoms (2002) and the Satellite Navigation and Communications Systems Workshop (2006). He is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He is a member of the EURASIP and AEI. He has been recipient of the 1988/89 premium for the paper “Multicarrier demodulator for digital satellite communication systems” by the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE), UK. In the years 2005-2007 he was Director of the National Interuniversity Consortium for Telecommunications (CNIT). Presently he is Vice-President.
