Biography

Davide Marchegiani was born in Rome in 1992. In 2017 he completed his Master's course in Environmental Engineering at Sapienza University of Rome, with a thesis mainly focusing on the prediction of rainfall extremes through a NHMM statistical model. In 2018 he worked as a research scholar at Sapienza, on the retrieval of soil moisture from satellite images. Starting from March 2019 he is a PhD Candidate at Monash University, under the supervision of A. Prof. Dietmar Dommenget, with a project on geo-engineering approaches to climate change using the GREB climate model. Like one of his friends usually says: "Reason is nothing without passion".

THESIS: Geo-engineering approaches to climate change with the GREB climate model

The main purpose of my PhD is to investigate and apply geo-engineering to modify the present climate, which trends are leading towards the increase of temperatures by 3°C above pre-industrial levels.
