Francesco Pilla’s area of expertise is geospatial analysis and modelling of environmental dynamics, which involves the development of environmental pollution models (air, noise, water) and decision support tools using a GIS platform. The work focuses on understanding complex environmental phenomena in order to pre-empt the impacts resulting from the interactions between human population and the environment.

The H2020-SC5-funded iSCAPE project, coordinated by Dr. Pilla, makes use of this expertise on GIS based tools as a way to integrate co-design (as part of Living Labs) in urban planning and pervasive sensing (static and mobile as part of citizen science initiatives) to improve city life from an environmental pollution perspective.
