Dr. Costanzi’s teaching interests mainly focus on the countering of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), chiefly chemical weapons. The courses are offered to both science and non-science majors. Depending on the targeted audience, they combine to different degrees science, history, and arms control policy.

His scholarly work is based on two main research lines. The first one focuses on the application of computational chemistry an molecular modeling to the study of the interactions between chemicals and living organisms. The second one focuses on the analysis of gaps in current policies and practices that allow WMD proliferation the conceptualization of solutions and tools to narrow them. Additionally, he is interested in raising awareness on CBRN issues.

He is also passionate about the sea, and he is a PADI certified Advanced Underwater Diver as well as a member of the Center for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC).
