Short Bio: 

Francesco obtained his Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2011 and the Master's Degree in Energy Engineering in 2014 at the University of Calabria with the highest marks (Cum Laude). In 2018, he received the title of "Doctor Europæus" in the XXX Doctoral Course of Civil and Industrial Engineering of the University of Calabria with his doctoral thesis entitled "Study of an unfired closed Joule-Brayton cycle in a concentrating solar tower plant with a mass flow rate control system". As post-doctoral fellow at the University of Calabria, his research activity was focused on internal combustion engine cooling systems.

His current research activity addresses new energy systems making use of polygeneration and modular concentrated solar technologies that can be easily integrated into electrical and district heating networks.
