Stefania Tamea

Born in 1978, she graduated summa cum laudae in Civil Engineering and earned the Ph.D. at the Politecnico di Torino in February 2007 with a thesis about the probabilistic prediction of river flows.

She has been Visiting Research Specialist at the Princeton University (Princeton, NJ, USA) working with Ignacio Rodriguez-Iturbe on stochastic models of wetland ecohydrology. Currently she is a post-doc researcher at the Politecnico di Torino.

She is author of 12 papers in peer reviewed journals with more than 100 net citations and H-index=7 (as of June 2012). She is referee for several international journals and she has been convener of some sessions at the European Geoscience Union Meetings.

Research interests:

- Ecohydrology of wetlands and groundwater-dependent ecosystems.
- Interactions between rainfall, vegetation, soil moisture and water table.
- Technologies and turbines for small hydropower plants.
- Probabilistic predictions of river flow time series.
