My research interests include flow and transport phenomena in geologic porous media. I have been investigating on subsurface hydrology and soil physics for ten years, attending universities in Italy, Spain, and USA, as well as multiple international workshops related to my academic background.
In addition to my geosciences curriculum, I have taken several graduate courses from interdisciplinary fields such as Chemical, Environmental, Civil and Petroleum Engineering, which allow me to understand flow and transport problems from different research perspectives.
My work experience started in the environmental consulting, where I gained expertise in numerical models applied to real world scenarios and related to management of groundwater resources, aquifer contamination and remediation, and civil underground excavation.
Following is a list of my main specialties:
+ Geological Storage of Carbon Dioxide
+ Quantitative Hydrogeology
+ Experimental analysis of subsurface processes
+ Multiphase flow and transport numerical models
+ Control and monitoring of underground civil work
+ Geological, hydrological, and geotechnical characterization of porous and fractured media
