Civil and environmental engineering with a strong focus on hydraulic systems are essentially the two MSc courses that I pursued and the reasons why I define myself as a Groundwater Modeller. While the engineering formation allowed me to gain experience in different fields (planning of civil structures, hydraulic data collection, water allocation modelling), explore different companies (AITEC (It), Engineering Without Borders (Ar), Deltares (Nl)) and learn several languages (Italian, English, Spanish and French), the passion for the research in the groundwater modelling field eventually resulted in a publication on Water Resources Research and prompted me to enrol in a PhD at the University of Nottingham. My doctorate will focus on the mathematical theory behind the modelling of fluids in porous media and specifically on mechanism of Non-Fickian transport and upscaled models applied to real groundwater systems.
