Biography

Paolo Filippucci was born in Rome, Italy, in 1990. He received the M.S. degree in mechanical engineering with excellence, from the University of Perugia (Perugia), Italy, in 2015.

From August  to December 2016, he carried out an Internship with the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) within the project “Enhancing the Benefits of Remote Sensing Data and Flood Hazard Model in Index-based Flood Insurance (IBFI) in South Asia, under Water Availability, Risk and Resilience (WR)”.

In January 2017 he received a Scholarship to carry research at the Research Institute of Geo-Hydrological Protection (IRPI) of the National Research Council (CNR) of Perugia under the topic: “Use of satellite data for monitoring of hydrological processes and improvement of hydrological modeling in the context of climatic change”.

Then, in Janaury 2019, he received a Research Fellowship under the topic: ” Use of remote sensing data for hydrological applications: monitoring of soil moisture and estimation of river discharge”, at the IRPI.

In June 2022 he received his PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Florence and the title of Doktor der technischen Wissenschaften (Dr.techn.) at Technischen Universität Wien TU (TUWIEN). The title of his thesis is “High-resolution remote sensing for rainfall and river discharge estimation”.
