This is Giovanni Ravazzani’s website.

I am an assistant professor within the Politecnico di Milano, in Italy, working in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

My main research topics are centered around hydrological modelling, and more precisely:

  • Flood forecasting
  • Irrigation management
  • Climate change
  • Groundwater modelling
  • River-groundwater interaction
  • Flood risk
  • Sediment transport
