He is a Environmental Scientist focused on the sediment transport dynamics of coastal lagoons. He work mainly in finite element modelling of the Hydrodynamics and Morphological Evolution of lagoons and coastal area. Actually his research is focused on 1) the numerical study of the wave, current and sediment interaction on shallow areas, 2) simulating the long tem morphological evolution of coastal lagoons, 3) the study of the sea-lagoon water and solid exchanges.

  • Co-Leader in the ARPA FvG Project “ Hydrodynamic and sediment transport of the Lagoons of Grado and Marano”
  • Co-Leader in a part of the CORILA Project “La laguna di Venezia nel quadro dei cambiamenti climatici, delle misure di mitigazione ed adattamento e dell’evoluzione degli usi del territorio”
