bio

My main research interest is centered on water in the Alps and in mountain areas world-wide. Within this topic, I try to answer questions concerning water resources and natural hazards (first of all floods). I’m also particularly interested in changes in the Earth system, especially as regards climate, land use and population. My work is mainly based on hydrological modelling and on records of observed data, as well as on practical experience in hydraulic engineering and natural hazards assessments.
