Marco Chini received the Laurea (M.S.) degree in electronic engineering from La Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy, in 2003, and the Ph.D. degree in geophysics from the University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy, in 2008. In 2013, he joined the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), formerly Centre de Recherche Public-Gabriel Lippmann, Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg, where he is currently working at the Department of Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN). Between 2003 and 2012, he collaborated with the Department of Information Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications, La Sapienza University of Rome. Between July 2006 and August 2008, he was a Visiting Researcher at the Department of Aerospace Engineering Science, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO, USA, working on very high resolution optical images for urban monitoring. He has been involved in projects supported by the Italian Civil Protection (DPC), European Space Agency (ESA), Italian Space Agency (ASI), and European Commission for mapping flooded areas, detecting damage caused by earthquakes and assessing seismic risk. His research is focused on the analysis of multitemporal data, classification, feature extraction, data fusion, and segmentation. His research activities include the development of classification and change detection techniques using optical and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data. He is also interested in SAR Interferometry (InSAR) technique for measuring surface deformation and geophysical applications.
