Giuliano Liuzzi received his Master Degree in Physics at Università del Salento in Lecce, Italy in July 2012. His first work was dedicated to the study of Martian atmosphere and surface composition.

After that, he won a PhD position in Environmental Engineering and Physics at Università della Basilicata, Potenza, Italy. During this period, he specialized in studying, elaborating and implementing radiative transfer models in Earth and Planetary atmospheres, and in atmospheric spectroscopy. He collaborated in several projects funded by EUMETSAT for studying Earth surface properties from satellite on a global scale, and for the retrieval of trace gases in the Earth atmosphere.

After getting his PhD in 2016, and working for a further year in Potenza, he moves to the US, where he now works at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and American University. His current research activity is focused on the deep, high resolution study of the vertical structure of the Martian Atmosphere with Exomars/TGO. Also, he still works on various aspects of the Earth atmospheric composition.

He currently has ~20 works published on International Peer Reviewed Journal.
