Rizzo Angela

via Thomas Alva Edison s.n.c. - 81100 Caserta (CE), Italy

Angela Rizzo graduated cum laude in 2011 in Environmental Sciences at University of Naples “Parthenope” and in 2017 achieved a PhD degree in Coastal Geomorphology (XXIX cycle). Her research activity is focused on the vulnerability evaluation and risk assessment, with specific reference to the potential impacts of sea level rise on coastal areas.

During her Ph.D., she developed an index-based methodology for the assessment of the susceptibility of low-lying areas to erosion and flooding processes. In order to investigate coastal sectors with different geo-morphological characteristics, she carried out part of her research activity in Spain, collaborating with the Department of Earth Sciences of Cadiz University. Furthermore, she spent a research period at the Flood Hazard Research Centre in London (UK).

Since October 2018, she is working at Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change (CMCC), supporting the management of international and national projects (PROLINE-CE, RURAL) related to natural hazards and climate change impacts assessment.

She is member of the Italian Association of Geomorphology since 2014.
