Research interests

I am a civil engineer specializing in coastal studies and computer modelling.

I joined the University of Liverpool in 2016 after completing my PhD at Boston University, USA. I have an international reputation for the study of coastline evolution, hydrodynamics and coastal management strategies with focus on engineering with nature.

Evidences of the sustained excellence in my work include a prize from the Italian National Academy of Sciences (Accademia dei Lincei) for my studies on coastal wetlands, invitations to speak at international conferences and invited manuscripts in high impact journals.
