About Me

My work focuses on studying the role of streamflow variability as driver of natural and industrial processes, as floods' occurrence, sediment transport within river catchments and production of energy by means of hydropower plants.

The final goal of my research is the development of robust analytic tools allowing for a reduction of costs for engineering firms and public authorities dealing with the characterization of natural processes.
