Salvatore Capozziello is a Full Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Department of Physics at the Universita' di Napoli "Federico II", Visiting Professor at Gran Sasso Science Institute (L'Aquila), and Honorary Professor at Tomsk State Pedagogical University (Russia). He also holds research appointments at Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica (INAF), and Gruppo Nazionale di Fisica Matematica (GNFM-INDAM). From 2012 to 2018, he was President of the Italian Society for General Relativity and Gravitation (SIGRAV). Professor Capozziello has spent periods of his scientific career in Germany, Poland, the UK, Mexico, the USA, South Africa, Canada, France, and Japan. His research focuses on general relativity, cosmology, relativistic astrophysics, and physics of gravitation in their theoretical and phenomenological aspects, in particular extended theories of gravity and their cosmological and astrophysical applications. His main scientific achievement has been in 2002 when he introduced the concept of gravitational curvature quintessence, f(R) gravity, to explain the cosmological dark energy. He is the author of almost 550 refereed papers and six books and listed as one of the Top Italian Scientists.
