Susanna Corti, coordinator of the "Global Change" unit in the Earth system science and environmental technologies Department of the CNR, holds a Ph.D. 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. 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?). 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, executive Editor of "Climate Dynamics" (since 2007), member of the Joint Scientific Committee (JSC) of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of ECMWF.
