Research Activity: 

Susanna Corti, a principal scientist at “Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche” (CNR) and coordinator of the "Global Change" unit in the Earth system science and environmental technologies Department of the CNR, holds a PhD in Physics at the University of Bologna. Her research interests cover a wide range of topics across the physics of weather and climate. This includes sub-seasonal to decadal ensemble climate predictions; High-resolution climate modelling; Weather and Climate predictability; Impact of stochastic physical parameterizations in model simulations from sub-seasonal to centennial time-scales. Before joining ISAC-CNR she worked at CINECA (Italian Inter-University Consortium for High-Performance Computing) where she has contributed to a number of EU-funded projects on weather and climate research. During her career she worked at the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) as a consultant in the Predictability Section of the Research Department in the framework of two EU-funded projects: “Short-term climate variability and THOR (Thermohaline Overturning at Risk?). Susanna Corti has a record of 30 publications with more than 10 citations and an h-index of 21. She contributed to the IPCC WG1 (Fifth Assessment Report) and she is Lead Author for the forthcoming IPCC WG1 AR6. Currently, she is Principal Investigator (PI) for CNR of four European projects, such as the H2020-funded PRIMAVERA (PRocess-based climate sIMulation: AdVances in high-resolution modelling and European climate Risk Assessment) and TiPES (Tipping Points in the Earth System) projects. Susanna Corti is executive Editor of "Climate Dynamics" (since 2007), a member of the Joint Scientific Committee (JSC) of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of ECMWF.
