I am an Environmental Scientist specialized in Modelling (statistical, numerical, system dynamics) and Hydrogeology, with experience in both academic research and consulting in various countries (Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Colombia). My main interest is in environmental studies related to water, with a strong focus on interdisciplinarity, modeling (of ecosystems, water resources, risk assessment, ecosystem services, soil physics, chemistry and biology), GIS, statistics and agriculture. My goals are to help to achieve sustainable development and create scientific knowledge by integrating various scientific disciplines on one hand and finding the connection between theory and practice on the other.
I worked both independently and in a team: independently while managing the monitoring network of the hydrogeology laboratory of Bologna University (about water fluxes and quality in a natural park) and as the hydrogeology consultant in a climate change impact study in Colombia; as part of a team during an interdisciplinary study about evapotranspiration in Spain (with a Dutch University); as leader of a team when organizing the yearly fieldwork program for Ph.D. students (in Italy) and M.Sc. students (in The Netherlands and Spain). I have experience in scientific writing (and reviewing), scientific presentations, meeting preparation (I organized the Ph.D. monthly meeting for the hydrogeology department of Twente University), computer programming, teaching, student tutoring. I would gladly travel around for work.
