I am a glaciologist interested in fundamental, mathematical aspects of the dynamics of large land-based ice masses.
My work is primarily motivated by curiosity for how nature works. By combining a diverse background in fluid dynamics, applied mathematics, and observational glaciology, my research strives to unravel the physics governing rapid and potentially catastrophic change of the cryosphere in a warming climate.
I earned my Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from Politecnico di Torino (Italy) in 2016. After that, I moved to the University of British Columbia for a short term postdoctoral appointment (2016). I have been a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Geophysics Department at Stanford University since January 2017.
