Educational Background

    Poggiali's studies concern the implementation of super-resolution algorithms (i.e., bandwidth extrapolation techniques and SAR-altimetry
    processing) for improving the radar altimeter/sounder performances and the analysis of the obtained data in order to characterize the
    geomorphology and dielectric properties of planetary surfaces (i.e.,Titan’s surfaces and seafloors) by using backscattering models and
    Bayesian estimation approaches based on Monte-Carlo simulations.
