Dr Gualdi is Senior Scientist at the Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC) where he leads the “Climate Simulations and Predictions” Division (CSP) and Primo ricercatore at the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV). He holds a degree in Physics from the University of Modena (Italy) and a PhD in Geophysics from the University of Hamburg (Germany) and has more than 25 years of experience in climate modeling and predictions. During this period, he has contributed to the development of a number of climate models (e.g., SINTEX, INGV–SXG, CMCC–CM), used to perform climate scenario simulations and projections (CMIP3, CMIP5), and has contributed to numerous EU–Project in the field of climate predictions (e.g., DEMETER, ENSEMBLES, CIRCE, COMBINE, EUCP, MEDSCOPE and many others). Since 2015 he is leading the CMCC contribution to the C3S operational, multi–model seasonal forecasting system. Dr. Gualdi is currently President of the Società Italiana per le Scienze del Clima (SISC)and he is author of more than 90 peer-reviewed publications (WOS h-index = 30).
