Elisa Arnone

Scientist – Engineer

  • Extreme events statistics
  • Rainfall driven processes
  • Data analysis
  • Scientific programming

Being an engineer was a childhood’s wish for Elisa, probably driven by her passion for math and her sense of pragmatism. The desire of exploring the secrets of the Earth led her to be an environmental engineer. The simple and at the same time complex concept of the ‘water cycle’ has marked her research education, as she obtained her ph.D in hydraulic engineering with a focus on rainfall-driven hydrological and geomorphic processes. Understanding the “inseparable relationship between atmospheric phenomena and land-surface hydrologic processes” (cit. RLB) has been the driven motivation of her research activities so far. Natural processes can be conceptualized, modeled and investigated to predict the future.
