Personal Information

Born in Torino on July 24th, 1988

9-12/2014, 3-6/2015 – Visiting Research Student at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. I have been working on ice stream dynamics under the supervision of Prof. Christian Schoof.
6/2014 – XXII Alpine Summer School "Dynamics, Stochastics and Predictability of the Climate System", supported by Gruppo Italiano Idraulica.
2014  – Admission to Scuola Interpolitecnica di Dottorato, a high qualification PhD program offered jointly by Politecnico di Torino, Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Bari.
9/2013 – Summer School "Fluid Dynamics of Sustainability and the Environment" organized by Ecole Polytechnique (Paris) and Cambridge University.

2013 – Ph.D. Student in Engineering for Natural and Built Environment, Politecnico di Torino, under the supervision of Prof. Luca Ridolfi and Prof. Carlo Camporeale. My research project concerns Glaciers and Ice-Sheets Morphodynamics.

2012 – Master degree cum laude in Environmental Engineering, Politecnico di Torino. Thesis: “Hydrodynamic instabilities in open channel flows over permeable walls”.
2010 – Bachelor Degree in Environmental Engineering, Politecnico di Torino. Thesis: “Stability analysis of laminar supraglacial flows”. 

Research interests

Glacier melting and surface dynamics.
Pattern formation in the glacial environment.
Ice stream spatial and temporal dynamics.
Fluid mechanics 
Morphological instabilities.
Hydrodynamic instabilities in film flows and flows over porous media.
