Personal profile

Personal information

Dr Maurizio Mazzoleni is an Assistant Professor at the Water and Climate Risk department of the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) of VU Amsterdam.

His current research activities focuses on exploring and modelling the feedbacks between water and human systems, with particular interest on the influence of human actions on the cascading impacts of consecutive extremes.

During his MSc and PhD, he collaborated to the EU Projects KULTURisk and WeSenseIt to identify probabilistic approaches for flood risk assessment and integrate crowdsourced observations in mathematical model to improve flood forecasting. After his PhD in 2016, he joined IHE Delft for 2 years as Junior Lecturer working on the BPutra and H2020 GroundTruth 2.0 Projects. In the period 2018-2020 he worked as Postdoc in the ‘HydroSocialExtremes: Unravelling the mutual shaping of hydrological extremes and society’ project, with the objective of explore and model the dynamics and risks generated by feedback mechanisms between physical, technical and social processes. In 2021 he joined IVM as Assistant Professor.

Maurizio is the coordinator of the MSc course in Water and Climate Systems and the MSc course of Global and Sustainability Analysis at VU Amsterdam. He also teaches in the MSc course Water Risk and Multidisciplinary Uncertainty and Risks ant VU, and in the MSc course Hydraulic Engineering at KTH (Stockholm, Sweden).
