Stefano Vignudelli has over 25 years of scientific experience in the area of satellite remote sensing (radar altimetry, in particular) for studying oceans and inland waters. Major interests include processing methods for data analysis, validation with local field observations, multi-sensor synergy, exploitation. Most significant accomplishment has been to lead development of satellite radar altimetry in challenging areas (e.g., coastal zone) to provide improved measurements for water level research and applications. He is one of the organizers of a regular series of coastal altimetry workshops and co-editor of the Springer Book “Coastal Altimetry” (20 chapters, 70 people involved). He is also co-author of three chapters of books and over 50 publications (19 in peer-reviewed journals). He is coordinator/partner/evaluator of scientific projects. He is member of organizing/scientific committees and international societies (AGU, MTS, etc.). He is actually associate editor for Elsevier Advances for Space Research Journal and vice-present of Pan Ocean Remote Sensing Association.
