She holds a master’s degree in Geological Sciences from the “Sapienza” University of Rome, a PhD in Forest Ecology at University of Tuscia in Viterbo (IT) and a Post-University Master on “General and Applied Geophysics” at INGV/University of Pisa.
Since more than 10 years, she is involved in CMCC scientific and project management activities and, as researcher of the Division on Impacts on Agriculture, Forests and Ecosystem Services (IAFES), she is expert on GIS-based water cycle and land use change evaluations under climate change and variability, including indicators of slow-onset extreme episodes like hydrological droughts and various attributes of low inflow periods. Through these tools, she deals with the quantification of feedbacks between climate and terrestrial ecosystem components due to water, soil and plants interactions, with focus on impacts on water resources. She has also extensive expertise on GIS-based algorithms and tools related to terrain analysis procedures, essential for a robust hydrological modeling.
