In 2008, he obtains, from the University of Salerno, a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, with a final dissertation based upon the analytical modelling of the extrusion and stretching processes targeted at thermoplastic polymers. During PhD research work, he mainly focuses on heat treating of steels and iron based alloys, mechanical characterization of unconventional and composite materials, innovative technologies for welded and glued joints, treatments finalized to increase the surface tension of polymeric films, the application of fuzzy logic in order to adjust the extrusion die during the film casting process and rapid prototyping by laser sintering. Currently, he is particularly interested in alternative cosmology and special relativity. His main interest lies in the attempt to preserve the validity of notions, considered as outdated, by assigning a different meaning, coherently with the phenomenological reality, to equations usually classified as relativistic. He is a member of the editorial board of the journal Research and Reviews: Journal of Pure and Applied Physics.
