Mattia Amadio started his research activity at CMCC in 2012. He is an environmental scientist and holds a PhD in “Science and management of Climate Change” from the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. He works in the Risk Assessment and Adaption Strategy division, focusing on the estimation of economic costs connected to natural hazards, in particular floods and inundations. Part of his work experience was spent on Small Island Developing States.
His research involves the development of a flood risk modelling framework which covers the spatial representation of economic value, the characterisation of hazard magnitude and the elaboration of updated, reliable damage models. He runs the climate service FLOOD-MAGE, which is a tool for the estimation of economic costs triggered by flood events.
