Dorotea Iovino holds a Ph.D. in physical oceanography at the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen (Norway).
She expanded her knowledge and experience in polar oceanography and numerical modeling during the post-doctorate at the Laboratoire d’Océanographie et du climat: Expérimentation et Approches Numériques (LOCEAN) in Paris (France), and is currently a researcher at the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change (CMCC), in Bologna, where she cooridnates the “Ocean and Sea Ice Modeling” group. 
She is member of the CLIVAR/CliC Northern Oceans Regional Panel​ ​(NORP). As NEMO Officer, she leads the CMCC effort within the NEMO System Team in developing the model system.
Her research is mainly aimed at the dynamics of the​​ ​polar oceans​​ (water mass transformation, dense water formation and its connection with the large-scale circulation; circulation in marginal seas), thermodynamic and dynamic sea ice processes, and the role of sea ice in climate variability.
Her activities at the present include high-resolution ocean modeling and improvements of numerical sea-ice models.
