Education

PhD in Environmental Engineering

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich)
Mar 2009 - Jan 2014

Hydrological modelling of slope stability

Dissertation description: Goal of the dissertation is to develop a physically-based distributed model, continuous in space and time, in order to investigate the interactions between surface and subsurface hydrology and landslides initiation. The model uses the object-oriented features of C++ and is accelerated using the CUDA architecture.
