In 2011 he started to work as a trainee at Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM, non-profit research organization) under the supervision of Dr. Jaroslav Mysiak, developing his master thesis “Flood risk assessment in the Po river basin under a Climate Change scenario”. The research focused on spatially explicit assessment of economic damage due to flood in the downstream part of the Italy’s largest river basin district, a polder-like subregion. Once completed his degree with top marks (110/110), he started working as a junior researcher for FEEM and for the Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change (CMCC), in the disaster risk reduction group led by Dr. Mysiak. He has been involved as project manager for “Disaster Risk Reduction in Republic of Mauritius”, funded by the Government of the Republic of Mauritius.
Since 2012 he contributed to the FP7 project CATALYST (Capacity development for hazard risk reduction & adaptation) and the EuropeAid funded project CASCADE (Climate Change Adaptation Strategies for Water Resources and Human Livelihoods in the Coastal Zones of Small Island Developing States), which has a focus on Caribbean islands (St Lucia, St Vincent & Grenadines, and Grenada). He is part of the team working on the FP7 project “ENHANCE” (Enhancing risk management partnerships for catastrophic natural disasters in Europe).
