Keywords: flood forecasting classification of river basins artificial neural networks bridge piers scour rainfall-runoff models water demand modelling

Research areas:

1) Rainfall-runoff modelling, with i) physically-based spatially-distributed models, ii) conceptual lumped models and iii) data-driven models;

2) Calibration of hydrological models (mono and multi-objective, utility functions) and data requirements;

3) Real-time flood forecasting systems (models combination) and flood warning systems;

4) Estimation and nowcasting of rainfall fields through remote sensing;

5) Time-series analysis techniques of hydro-meteorological variables;

6) Classification of watersheds in homogeneous regions on the basis of geo-morpho-climatic and hydrometric variables;

7) Estimation of scour depth around bridge piers;

8) Hydrological modeling of ungauged/poorly gauged basins (PUB);

9) Water demand analysis and modelling as a function of monthly climatic and touristic drivers.
