    Biographical Statement

    Stefano has a background as an environmental engineer from the University of Genova in Italy, and holds a PhD in environmental science from the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice in Italy, jointly with Eurac Research related to multi-risk assessments in mountain regions within the context of climate change. During his PhD, he spent four months at the UN-IHE Institute for Water Education (Delft, Netherlands) working on system dynamics modelling for water supply and demand assessments in an Alpine catchment. Stefano currently works as a post-doc at the Climate and Disaster risk group of Eurac Research on climate-related impacts.

    Stefano’s research aims at the adoption of a systemic perspective to advance the understanding of cross-sectoral and dynamic interactions of multi-risk processes. His interests focus on mountain regions, capturing the spread of water scarcity impacts that can arise from unbalanced conditions of water availability and cross-sectoral water demands. He is actively involved in proposals writing for European and national funding schemes, combining his interest on risk assessments with human relations and team working attitude.
