Alessandro Frigeri


My research interest focuses on Planetary Science, Geoinformatics and Geophysical data acquisition (both in the field and from remote sensing instruments), processing and comparative analysis of dataset with different data models (e.g. topography, spectral and visible imagery and radar). I use and develop GIS tools to enable quantitative spatial analysis in my research activity.

I'm part of Scientific Teams of instruments onboard mission to Mars (ESA's Mars Express and NASA's MRO) and asteroids belt's Vesta and Ceres (NASA's Dawn).
