Enrico Scoccimarro is senior scientist at euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC), director of the “Climate Variability and Prediction” (CLIVAP) division.
He has more than 25 years of experience in climate modelling with a special focus on the coupling between the atmosphere and ocean components of General Circulation Models (GCMs).

During this period, he has contributed to the development of several GCMs (e.g., INGV-SXG, CMCC-Med, CMCC-CM CMCC-CM2) and has performed a number of climate scenario simulations and projections participating to the different Coupled Model Intercomparison Projects (CMIP3, CMIP5, CMIP6) providing climate data for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Assessment Reports.
He has been partner and WP leader in several international projects (mainly EU projects) mainly with high resolution modelling and impacts associated to extreme events.
His main research interest is on extreme events such as Tropical Cyclones with particular focus on their interaction with the Climate System. He has been member of the TCMIP (Tropical Cyclone Model Intercomparison Project) and member of the US-CLIVAR Hurricane Working Group since 2011.
From 2014 to 2020 he has been teacher of the “General Circulation Models” course for the “Science and Management of the Climate Change” Doctorate Programme of the Cà Foscari University of Venice. Since 2018 to 2020 served as  member of the European Marine Board Expert Group for the definition of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) for Oceans and Human Health (OHH) in Europe, and since 2020 he is the Italian Representative within the Management Committee of the European network for Mediterranean cyclones in weather and climate (MEDCYCLONES). In 2017 Enrico obtained the National Academic Qualification as Associate Professor in Geophysics. In 2021 Enrico obtained the National Academic Qualification as Full Professor in Geophysics.


Enrico has served as reviewer for more than 30 scientific journals and participated to the editorial board of the Annals of Geophysics, Atmosphere, and Frontiers journals.
He is author of more than 85 peer-reviewed publications (15 as first author) presented in more than 130 international conferences, with most of the scientific production focusing on extreme events.

Enrico H index  is 32 following ISI Web and 40 following Google Scholar. He got about 4000 citations  following ISI Web and 5800 following Google Scholar  (updated Jan, 2024).
