I joined UF in December 2017 after receiving my Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Padova, Italy, and after two post-docs, at Boston University and Penn State University. My primary research focus is on the numerical modeling of coastal and estuarine hydrodynamics and morphodynamics. My ultimate goal is to understand the mechanisms governing the evolution of natural and man-influenced environments.
