About Me:

Before joining UNL I graduated in Environmental and Geomatic Engineering at Politecnico di Milano in 2014. My research areas are data-driven modeling, sensitivity and uncertainty analysis, with an emphasis on their application to groundwater resources management. As part of my Ph.D., I joined the Hydroinformatics research group in IHE Delft, which carries together with UNL a number of projects related to the water management and food security. I serve as a reviewer for different international journals, and I was involved in supervisory activities for different MSc students. I received the Scientific Communication Award by the Digital Agriculture Society (2018).
