Personal profile


Edoardo 's research focuses on the understanding and modeling of the hydrological processes that determine the temporal and spatial soil water dynamics and related biogeochemical processes both in rural and urban environments. Since these dynamics are strongly nonlinear and deterministically unpredictable, part of his research is dedicated to the study of general nonlinear dynamical systems and stochastic processes that can find applications in hydrology.
