Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

My main line of investigation is the study of the surface dynamics in coastal areas. More particularly, I focus my research on two aspects of transport and diffusion processes in marine environment applying an integrated numerical –observational approach:

- the implementation of coupled physical-biological models to determine the impact of the physical processes on planktonic organisms (both phyto and zooplankton)

- the numerical simulation of transport and diffusive processes of pollutants tracers

The approach I follow is aimed at integrating observational hydrodynamic, biological and chemical data with numerical simulations. I have also interested in the analysis of surface circulation and wave climate using HF radars and in situ measurements.
