Personal profile

Personal information

Dr Paolo Scussolini is postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the Water and Climate Risk department of the IVM.

Presently, he aims to combine the efforts of the paleo climate and the climate impacts communities. In his LIG Floods project he uses paleo climate models, global hydrological and hydraulic models and flood risk models to look how floods impacts may look like if a warmer climate, similar to the Last Interglacial (125,000 years ago) were to materialize. He is also interested in how climate change and growth alter flood risk at the city-scale, and in the effects of measures of climate adaptation.

His background is in the environmental disciplines, and he specialized in climatology. He started his research activities investigating the lacustrine ecology of the Pyrenees from a paleolimnological perspective. He then wrote a Ph.D. thesis in the field of paleoclimatology and paleoceanography, studying the dynamics of glacial-interglacial climate change, as recorded in marine sediment cores from the South Atlantic Ocean.

Paolo coordinates the BSc Honours’ course in Climate Change, and the MSc course in Water Management.
