A brand new but highly ambitious Lab

About US

Prof. Dr. Pasquale Borrelli

I graduated at the Sapienza University of Rome (2006) and obtained my PhD at the Freie Universität Berlin (2011). During the last fourteen years I gained a holistic expertise on human-environment interactions seeking to unravel the past, present and future role of land use and climate change at multiple spatial scales. My scientific path is driven by the idea to enhance our regional and global understanding for one of the most significant threats to land, soil, environmental ecosystem service functions and thus food security, named soil erosion.

My scientific career path reflects my great interest and familiarity to work in international and multidisciplinary environments. I enjoy a reputation as an international networker and draw on an extensive worldwide scientific network (ETH Zurich, McGill University, Stanford University, KU Leuven University, Colorado State University, Beijing Normal University, UN World Food Programme, US Department of Agriculture (USDA), Chinese Academy of Sciences, among others). During the last years, I have gained professional research skills in outstanding universities of six different countries, European (European Commission Joint Research Centre) as well as United Nation institutions (Land and Water Division of the UN FAO).

visiting phd student

I obtained my MSc in Water Resources and Environmental Sanitation at the Hydraulic Research Institute (IPH) of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (2018). Currently, I am doing my PhD at IPH, and I am a visiting PhD student at University of Pavia. Since 2016 I have been working with erosion and sediment transport modeling, hydrological modeling and remote sensing products in large scales. In my PhD, I have been studying the sediment flows in South America using hydrologic-hydrodynamic and sediment modeling. I intend to advance the understanding of the anthropogenic effects on sediment flows in South America during the time in Pavia.
