Dr Andrea Taramelli is Professor Associate at IUSS University, Pavia and reader in Remote Sensing and Surface Coastal Process Science at the Institute for Environmental Protection and Research Rome. He has degrees from the University of Perugia and MBA from University of Pisa (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna) and was Lectures at the University of Perugia and University of Roma La Sapienza.
His doctorate on landslide singularities (power-law concept) was undertaken jointly between the University of Perugia under Professor Carlo Cattuto and Jeff Weissel's geomorphology group at the LDEO of Columbia University. His postdoc was on Assessing topography and surface changes using SAR techniques and multispectral imagery at LDEO of Columbia University. He took up a University Lectureship position (2003-2007) and Fellowship at Perugia University (2006 - 2009), and a Lectureship at La Sapienza University Roma (2009-2011).
He is actually Professor Associate at IUSS Pavia for “GIS and Remote sensing’ for master and PhD Programme in Risk and Emergency Management. His research includes science at the forefront of: development that links short-term surface processes to the long term development and dynamics of surface systems (Contribution of the differential SAR interferometry and high resolution multispectral image analysis to monitoring eco-surface evolution (Project Leader of ECOSTRESS DH ECHO, co-I of ECOPOTENTIAL DG Research and Copernicus User Uptake LOT1 and LOT2 DG Grow); uses new methodologies to develop earth process theories (“Modelling uncertainties in coastal and marine areas by means of innovative integration of remote sensing systems in morphodinamics modelling” MERMAID DG Research); investigates continental-scale surface system responses to future climate change (THESEUS FP7 and GMES User Uptake LOT1 DG Enterprise implementing Investigation of coastal areas morpho-dynamics using high resolution multispectral images and SAR); innovatively broadens the sedimentary applications of field spec analysis and is redefining understanding of coastal environmental responses to global change drivers, including through the use of multi-proxies to investigate humid-wet transitions (PI “Investigation of the shallow water coastal areas using high resolution hyperspectral-LiDAR data and field spec analysis”); providing coastal area management application within the ICZM new Framework directive Implementation (LIFE+IMAGINE and Group HOs).
