In 2007 he was visiting scholar at the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory (USA). In 2009-2010 he was PostDoc student at the Sezione di Catania, Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV-CT), Seismology Division. In 2009 he spent two months at the Department of Earth and Space Sciences, University of Washington (USA), to develop a monitoring system of seismo-volcanic and infrasonic signals. From 2011 up to 2015 he worked as researcher for the INGV-CT, Seismology Division. From June to July 2013 he was visiting researcher at at the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention (NIED; Tsukuba, Japan) to study Deep Long Period events recorded at Mt. Fuji. From 2015 to 2018, he was Associate Professor of Geophysics at the University of Perugia (Italy). In 2016-2017 he spent 40 days in Antarctica with the XXXII Italian expedition. From 2018 up to now, he has been Associate Professor of Geophysics at the University of Catania (Italy).

Research activities of Andrea Cannata have mainly regarded the investigation of the different kinds of seismic and infrasonic signals recorded in volcanic areas, for both research and surveillance purposes. He has also dealt with integration and interpretation of multi-parametric data (seismic, geodetic, geochemical, volcanological) recorded in volcanic areas, with the interaction between seismicity and volcano activity, coda seismic interferometry, seismic noise interferometry, repeating earthquakes, time series analysis, signal processing techniques, machine learning, glacial seismicity and microseism.
