He returned definitely to Italy in 1994 as a Researcher in mathematical analysis at the University of Milan, and in the following year he moved to the Institute of Mathematics and Physics at Como, Italy. Since 2001, he has been an Associate Professor of mathematical physics at the University of Insubria in Como, Italy. His research interests are in the field of dynamical systems and chaos, both in classical and quantum dynamics. He is also interested in the theory of singular continuous measures, orthogonal polynomials and their Fourier transforms, and the numerical analysis of these quantities.
