Mario Martina is Associate Professor in Hydrology at the University School for Advanced Studies IUSS Pavia in Italy. His research interests include: risk modelling for hydrological hazards, applications of hydrological and statistical models in the insurance and re-insurance industry, stochastic hydrology, rainfall-triggered landslides, paleohydrology. He teaches both to undergraduates and to master/PhD students courses on hydrology and catastrophe risk modelling. He’s supervised and is currently supervising several PhD students. Since 2017 he’s the head of Department of Science, Technology and Society.
He graduated as civil environmental engineer, got the PhD in hydrological modelling and worked as post-doc for several years at the University of Bologna, Italy. During that period, He spent some periods abroad (USA and UK) as visiting researcher.
After his post-doc and before being an academic researcher, he worked as a professional engineer in the fields of environmental engineering, insurance risk engineering and loss adjustment. During that period, he gained experience in the design of renewable (hydro, wind and solar) energy plants, in natural hazard risk assessment for the re-insurance industry and in insurance loss adjustment of both natural catastrophes and technological claims.
