Giampiero Esposito was born in Cercola (Naples) on 12 August 1962. He obtained a honors (i.e. cum laude) degree in Physics from Naples University on 23 October 1986, and was a St. John's Benefactor's Scholar at DAMTP in Cambridge (UK) from 1987 to 1991, in the Relativity Group of Professor Stephen Hawking, receiving a J.T. Knight Prize Essay in 1989 and a Ph.D. Degree from Cambridge University on 14 December 1991. After having been elected to INFN and ICTP post-doctoral positions at Naples and Trieste, respectively, he has been INFN Research Fellow at Naples (position with tenure) since 1 November 1993, and INFN Primo Ricercatore since 1 January 2007.
-National Coordinator of the INFN Research Project "Gravitation and Inflationary Cosmology" from June 2001 to June 2013;
-Organizer of the International Conference QUANTUM GRAVITY AND SPECTRAL GEOMETRY (Naples, July 2001);
-Organizer of the International School NEW PATHS TOWARDS QUANTUM GRAVITY, supported by the European Science Foundation and by leading Danish research institutions (Holbaek Bay, May 2008);
-National Coordinator of the INFN Research Project "Quantum Universe" from June 2013 to June 2016;
-Board Member of the refereed journal "International Journal of Geometric Methods in Modern Physics" since July 2003; 
-INFN Theory Group Coordinator in Naples from 16 December 2011 to 15 December 2019.
His original contributions are mainly devoted to quantum gravity and quantum field theory on manifolds with boundary (one-loop conformal anomalies, mixed and diff-invariant boundary conditions for Euclidean quantum gravity, heat-kernel asymptotics, Casimir effect and measurement of variations of zero-point energy), spontaneous symmetry breaking in the early universe, accelerated expansion of the universe, singularity avoidance in quantum cosmology, scattering from singular potentials in quantum mechanics. 
He is author or co-author of 243 scientific works (papers, books, eprints, theses, essays), including, in particular, 30 papers in Physical Review D15, 29 papers in Classical and Quantum Gravity, papers in various other journals including Communications in Mathematical Physics, Journal of High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics B and Physical Review Letters, and 8 monographs.
