A Researcher at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Bologna. His overarching research interests revolve around oceanography and ocean wave modelling, with specific interest in coastal ocean wave modelling. Primary research falls into the area of Wind-Wave Modeling (using third generation WAVE MODELS: WAM, WAVEWATCH III & SWAN). In recent times, he concentrated on investigating the uncertainties in the slope of the wave spectrum at the coastal locations; thereby suggesting a need to develop a location specific wave spectra. More specifically, interests falls in solving the prime issues related in a more accurate wave prediction at a nearshore location. Presently he works on the Numerical modeling of coastal erosion and inundations in the Emilia Romagna coasts and for nature-based solutions.
