I like outdoor activities such as trekking, nature walks, also thanks to my experience in the scouts, and I have always been interested in the processes related to our system called Earth, starting from how a rock or a mineral can be formed to studying volcanoes, earthquakes and all the outcomes that result from them, such as induced landslides and so on. For this reason, I decided to study geology and to continue with a PhD looking further, studying vulnerability, risk perception and resilience, which are extremely important in the geological field and have recently gained a lot of interest. The aim of the PhD project is to create vulnerability and resilience maps that can offer support to Civil Protection and help during emergency management processes. This project also seeks to contribute to two Sustainable Development Goals by trying to provide practical tools for assessing the vulnerability and resilience of an area.
