I had the opportunity to participate, together with Attilio Castellarin and several other researchers, to a study conducted by a team at the Technical University of Wien, showing that the timing of the floods has shifted across much of Europe.

At the 2017 scientific assembly in Port Elizabeth (South Africa) I gave a perspective talk titled "Should we reconsider the conceptual structure of hydrological models?". My presentation is a bit provocative and focuses on stochastic physically-based modeling of hydrological processes.

I gave a talk on the river memory experiment at the 2017 scientific assembly in Port Elizabeth (South Africa).

Science paper: Changing climate shifts timing of European floods

I had the opportunity to participate, together with Attilio Castellarin and several other researchers, to a study conducted by a team at the Technical University of Wien, showing that the timing of the floods has shifted across much of Europe. The sheds light on the influence of climate change on flood risk in Europe. The study was led by Prof. Guenter Bloeschl, who already cooperated with us in the past. The results highlight that climate change has induced a shift in the timing of floods over the years. Depending on the cause of the flood events, they occur earlier in some regions, in others they occur later.
