Francesco Barbadori

I’m a Geologist and a mountain lover. During my universities studies I expand my interests in Geomorphology, Geotechnics, Applied Geophysics in order to understanding Earth dynamics and the dynamics behind the occurrence of natural phenomena, in particular landslides. My PhD project is focused on understanding soil erosion mechanisms and effects using multidisciplinary methods (remote sensing and field surveys data) in order to develop an innovative approach for the calculating of soil erosion as predisposing factor for mass movements.

B. Sc. In Geological Sciences, University of Florence in 2018. Thesis: “Local Seismic response of the Civita di Bagnoregio cliff”
