Post-doc researcher of CERENA since July 2012, I hold a PhD in Geothermal Energy from IST and the University of Bologna (Italy), specifically on inverse geostatistical modeling of shallow geothermal reservoirs. My research focus is now on new techniques for geostatistical history matching for modeling oil&gas reservoirs, with the objective of reducing the computational time needed for these simulations. At the same time, I still collaborate with the University of Bologna in the area of geothermal energy and in the development of the prototype of my patent for geothermal probes installation.
