Giorgia Verri is a researcher working at CMCC OPA Division since 2012.
She holds a M.Sc. Degree in Physics at the University of Salento, obtained in 2009.
She holds a II level Master in Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energies, obtained in 2011 at La Sapienza University in Rome.
In 2016 she got a Ph.D. in Environmental Science at the University of Bologna with a thesis titled “Predictability studies for Regions of freshwater influence”.
As previous working experiences, she contributed to the development of an integrated modeling system for wind energy forecasting at Enel Engineering and Innovation Division and she was involved in the setup of an Operational System for wind energy and solar energy prediction at GSE SpA.
She spent 6 months as visitor at National Centre for Atmospheric Research in Boulder (Colorado) working on modeling both the inland and marine waters at mesoscales with a focus on their link in the estuarine areas.
She was involved in the organizing committee for the “Coastal Hydrology and Surface Processes linked to Air/Sea Modeling: 1st community of users workshop”.
Starting 2015, she has designed and implemented an Estuarine Box Model, the CMCC EBM (Verri et al 2020), to properly represent the net river release into mesoscale ocean models and to get estimate of the salt wedge intrusion.
She is currently involved in exploiting the numerical and physical capabilities of an unstructured-grid finite-element model based on SHYFEM code.
She is a lecturer of the PHD Future Earth, Climate Change and Societal Challenges at the University of Bologna where she holds a Numerical Modeling Specialised Course on the Hydrosphere and the link between terrestrial and marine waters.
Her research activities are aimed at investigating: (a) the link between inland and marine water working with both finite difference and finite elements models (b) novel approaches for representing the estuarine water exchange and the dynamics of the transitional systems (c) coupled/seamless modeling of the coastal water cycle.
