After a Bachelor (2010) and a Master degree (2012) in Environmental Engineering, I conducted my doctoral studies in the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Lab of Politecnico di Torino (2016), working on fundamental problems in theoretical glaciology. From 2014 to 2016 I was a fellow of the Scuola Interpolitecnica di Dottorato, a high qualification doctoral program jointly run by the three most prestigious technical universities in Italy, Politecnico di Torino, Milano and Bari. I conducted part of my doctoral research at the Glaciology Group of the University of British Columbia, where my focus was on the spatial dynamics of ice streams. After graduating in the spring 2016, I returned to the University of British Columbia as Postdoctoral Scholar. I joined the Department of Geophysics at Stanford in early 2017.
