Curriculum vitae


Dr. Andrea Storto is an environmental engineer and has obtained his Ph.D. in 2009 at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in close collaboration with the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (, studying the optimal assimilation of satellite radiances for regional medium-range NWP models by using variational assimilation schemes.

He had got a research fellowship from EUMETSAT and further to he has been also visitor at Meteo-France and JAMSTEC.
In 2009, he joined the Ocean Modeling and Data Applications Division of CMCC to develop a Global Ocean variational analysis system at eddy-permitting resolution for use in the context of ocean reanalyses, in particular within the EU-funded MyOcean project and its follow-up MyOcean2, and high-resolution operational oceanography.

His expertise mainly includes variational data assimilation, satellite altimetry, techniques for improving the representation of model errors in data assimilation and evaluation of ocean reanalyses.
