Pierfrancesco Dellino was born in Bari (Italy) on 1/31/1959. He got the degree in Geology and the PhD in Earth Science at Bari University. From 1993 to 2000 he was research assistant, from 2000 to 2001 associate professor, and from 2001 he is full professor of Volcanology at the Science Faculty of Bari University.

His teaching activity is mainly dedicated to Geological Science and Natural Sciences graduate and undergraduate degrees, where he teaches Volcanology, Volcanic Risk and Data Analysis in Geology.
He has been the supervisor of tens of graduate and PhD theses. He is member of the panel of the Earth Science PhD degree at Bari University. He also gives lectures and seminars for masters, workshops and schools in Italy and abroad.

Pierfrancesco Dellino is member of the Italian Association of Volcanology and is Executive Member of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth Interiors. He is member of the commission for the ex 60% research fund of Earth Science at Bari University. He has been President of the committee of Bari University for the national CIVR 2001-2003 research evaluation.
Pierfrancesco Dellino has been coordinator and/or Research Unit responsible of projects funded by the European Union and by the Civil Protection Department, in convention with Gruppo Nazionale per la Vulcanologia and with Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia. He has been national coordinator of a PRIN 06 project.

Pierfrancesco Dellino research activity is centred on the themes of physical volcanology, with particular reference to the processes and products of explosive eruptions and with the aim of both understanding eruptive mechanisms and contributing, with quantitative estimations, to the definition of the damage scenarios associated with volcanic hazard. Particular attention is dedicated to the active Italian volcanoes (Vulcano, Vesuvio, Campi Flegrei end more recently Stromboli) and also, in the last period, to some Icelandic and American volcanoes. In his research he bases on an intense cooperation with both Italian and foreign researchers (Germans, Americans and Icelandic).

Pierfrancesco Dellino uses a multidisciplinary approach that integrates various aspects: 1) field investigation; 2) laboratory investigation; 3) experimental and modelling investigations. This multidisciplinary research activity has been the subject of tens of scientific papers, most of them on high ISI impact factor journals.
Pierfrancesco Dellino, starting from the late '80, has always participated to the activities of IAVCEI both during the General Assemblies and at thematic workshops.
