Department of Civil, Environmental and Architecture Engineering

Master’s Degree in Hydraulic Engineering (summa cum laude) at the University of Palermo in 2001. He obtained a special award for his MD thesis “Relationship between hydrolocical response and morphological characteristics in Sicilian river basins”.

In February 2005 he obtained his Ph.D. in Hydraulic Engineering at the University Federico II of Neaples discussing the thesis “Modelling daily stremflow in low-yielding ephemeral catchments: problems and possibility”.

From January to August 2007 he was appointed as a Visiting Research at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, USA , working with Prof. A. Porporato.
