Degree PhD
Job type Research
Research Area(s) Physical Oceanography , Climatology, Meteorology , Marine and Coastal Engineering , Physical Oceanography , Climatology, Meteorology , Marine and Coastal Engineering
Research Activities The activities I am mainly focused in are here summarized: - the understanding of processes regulating the circulation in semi-enclosed basins, such as dense water formation, heat budget during and post severe wind storm events, air-sea interactions. - modeling coastal and nearshore processes, e.g. the effect of currents, wind and waves over sediment mobilization and transport. Modelling tools adopted are ROMS, the COAWST suite, POM, CU-POM hydrodynamical model, COSMO and COAMPS meteorological models, SWAN and WAM wave models. - Climate change impacts on marine areas, with particular interest to marine-related renewable energies and the solutions to convey the information from Global Climate Models to Regional Climate Models. - the influence and relevance of vertical turbulence on mixing processes, and the consequences that turbulence may have on biology, sediment transport and diving visibility, also through measurements of turbulent quantities by means of dedicated probes in order to improve turbulence closure schemes of oceanic models. - the observation and modelling of the dynamics of the wave-breaking region; applications that may follow from this are S&R activity, but also the prediction of oil-spilled trajectories, harmful algal bloom, mine trajectories etc.
