Short Bio

I am a Research Fellow at University of Bologna, since November 2018.
Previously I hold the position of Research Assistant Professor at the University of Notre Dame, IN, USA, (2014-2018), where I was deployment manager, onsite team leader and scientific team member for several US and international research programs and field experiments, and recipient of three research grants.
My primary research interest is the study of fundamental atmospheric boundary-layer flow dynamics in complex and heterogeneous environments (e.g. urban areas, coastal zones and mountainous terrain) by combining primarily experimental field measurements, data analyses and theoretical modeling. In addition, I am interested in interdisciplinary research on the mapping and assessment of nature-based solutions as sustainable measures for hydrometeorological risk reduction and climate change adaptation and mitigation. I am also actively involved in the development of a web platform for dissemination and exploitation of nature-based solutions for hydro-meteorological hazards and other activities of data management.
