Francesco has been invited to and presented at many major international conferences, where his research has been highly commended and won awards. He has widely published in peer-reviewed leading journals, for which he also regularly acts as a reviewer. In 2017 he chaired the ‘Life Cycle Assessment and Carbon Accounting’ Forum of the International Passive and Low Energy Architecture conference and the ‘Design for Sustainability’ Track of the International Sustainable Development Research Society conference.
