Anna Sperotto is a post-doctoral researcher at the ‘Risk Assessment and Adaptation Strategies’ division, which she joined in 2014. Her main research activity is focused on the development of multi-risk approaches for the assessment the environmental impact of natural hazards and climate change. Particular emphasis is given to the application of complex system methods (i.e. Bayesian Networks) and integrated models bridging different disciplines and information sources, to understand and communicate the complex and cascading interactions between natural and human systems, with the final aim to support decision making under uncertain and changing conditions. Anna has background in Environmental Sciences with a specialization in Integrated Coastal Zone Management (MSc, Cà Foscari University) and holds a Phd in Science and Management of Climate Change (Ca’Foscari University). She collaborated on different European and International research projects (PROLINE-CE, CLIM-RUN, GEMINA, ORIENTGATE), actually is involved in BRIDGE and VENEZIA2021 projects in collaboration with Cà Foscari University.
