Fosser Giorgia
Assistant Professor
Organization Unit: CLASSE STS
Scientific Discipline: Fisica per il sistema terra e per il mezzo circumterrestre


Giorgia graduated in civil engineering at University of Padua (Italy) with a master in hydrology, followed by a master in water resources management from UNESCO-IHE (The Netherlands). Afterwards, she completed a PhD at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology KIT (Germany), investigating the added value of convection-permitting models (CPMs) versus coarser regional climate models (RCM) in the representation of convective precipitation in present day and under climate change scenario. She worked at Météo France (France) before joining the Met Office Hadley Centre (UK). During the four years at the Met Office, she investigated the impact of different convection-permitting resolutions in the representation of heavy precipitation over the UK. Within the UKCP project, she has been responsible for running the first ensemble of convection-permitting climate projections and evaluating uncertainties in the climate change signal at convection-permitting scale. She is an experienced researcher on climate analysis and convective-scale climate modelling.
