Giacomo Roversi is currently a research grant fellow at the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (ISAC) of the National Research Council (CNR) of Italy, under the supervision of Dr. Luca Baldini, inside the National Project for Antarctic Research (PNRA), and is also collaborating with the Department of Physics and Astronomy ”Augusto Righi”, University of Bologna, under the supervision of Prof. Federico Porcù.
He graduated from the University of Ferrara in 2016 with a bachelor’s thesis on spaceborne radar estimates of snowfall rates above Antarctica. During his master studies he further specialized in meteorological Earth observations, remote sensing and data analysis.
Since the end of 2016 he researches about opportunistic sensing of precipitation. He graduated from the University of Bologna in 2022 with a master’s thesis on the exploitation of CMLs to estimate rainfall rates in Italy, also writing a scientific publication. During its activity, Dr Roversi has developed fruitful relationships with the major italian (Arpae, CNR) and international (KIT, WUR, KNMI, TAU, CTU) organizations active in the field. He contributed to the formation of an autonomous CML research group in Bologna (Italy) in 2022, of which he is currently a member.
Since June 2022 he is also working inside the INDRA Joint Research Project between Italy and Vietnam (Research and development of a precipitation estimation methodology using INtergrateD RAinfall measurements platform for agriculture, www.indra-project.info), for the University of Bologna.
