Pietro Alessandro Brivio


Pietro Alessandro Brivio received the Laurea Degree (summa cum laude) in Physics (1975) from the State University of Milan, Italy. 1977 - 1982 Research Fellow of the National Research Council (CNR) and from 1982 Research Scientist (2001 Senior Researcher) at Remote Sensing Unit of CNR-IREA in Milan. Since January 2010, he is Director of Research.

December 2004 - December 2015 Pietro Alessandro Brivio has been head of CNR-IREA research unit in Milan.

He has been working for more than 30 years in the field of Optical Remote Sensing with satellite, airborne and in situ data within the spectral range from visible to thermal IR. His expertise covers both the acquisition of radiometric measurements and their analysis through automatic interpretation of digital imagery. His research interests are the development of remote sensing techniques for: - land cover mapping using novel techniques as fuzzy logic and accuracy evaluation of satellite derived thematic maps with the introduction of fuzzy error matrix and optimal Pareto boundary - integration of multi-source time-series data for environmental indicators definition and assessment using approximate reasoning techniques.

Co-editor of special issues of: Pattern Recognition Letters, 1996 Vol. 17(13); International Journal of Remote Sensing, 2003 vol. 24(20); Italian [now European] Journal of Remote Sensing, 2011 vol. 43(3).

1996 - 1997 Visiting Scientist at Global Vegetation Monitoring (GVM) unit of the Space Applications Institute of Joint Research Centre, European Commission, Ispra, Italy.

From 1997 to 2004 he has been Contract Professor of "Remote Sensing" at Politecnico di Milano, Italy, (Ingegneria per l’Ambiente e il Territorio, Como).

June - August 2014 Visting Scientist at College of Natural Resources, University of Idaho, Moscow-ID, USA.
