Contact Salvatore Grimaldi


Salvatore Grimaldi, 1972, Italy. He is civil hydraulic engineer with a PhD in statistical hydrology from the Sapienza University of Rome and now associate professor at the University of Tuscia, Viterbo, Italy. He teaches Applied Hydrology and his research activities relates specifically to statistical hydrology, GIS terrain analysis, rainfall-runoff modelling in ungauged basins, new technologies for hydrological observations. At University of Tuscia he served as Department Head from 2009 to 2011 and as President of Graduate Program since 2007. He is Research professor at Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Polytechnic Institute of New York University and President of International Commission on Statistical Hydrology of International Association of Hydrological Sciences. He is part of Italian delegation for the IHP-UNESCO intergovernmental Councils, and visiting faculty or invited lecturer at MIT, Princeton University, Columbia University, New Mexico Institute of Technology, Polytechnic Institute of New York University, Florida International University, Universidad Agraria de la Habana, and Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tunis. Conveners and Chair of several session and workshop at General Assembly of European Geophysical Union (EGU), American Geophysical Union (AGU) and International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). He is an active Associate Editor of four international Journals and reviewer of 65 International Journals and Research Institutions.
