Hello, welcome to my home page. My name is Alessio Rovere, I was born 100 meters from the Mediterranean Sea in Northwestern Italy. I have a degree in environmental sciences from the University of Genoa, Italy. In 2012, I obtained a PhD in marine sciences at the same University.
During my PhD, I worked as a visiting scientist in several Universities abroad. Afterwards, I did a two-years postdoc at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, NY, where I still hold a position as adjunct research scientist. Currently I am the junior group leader of the ‘sea level and coastal changes’ group at MARUM, University of Bremen, Germany. The group is a bridge group with a non-university institution, the Leibniz Center for Tropical Marine Ecology (ZMT), and is currently funded by the German Excellence Initiative. In brief, a junior group leader has the duty to manage staff (PhD students and postdocs), to independently realize research projects and assume budget responsibilities.
I am a field geologist who uses GPS and GIS technologies to understand past sea level changes. In my research, I collaborate with Earth modelers to understand the role of isostatic and tectonic processes that cause post-depositional displacement of the sea level markers observed in the field. My research has also a focus on modern coastal processes, and I have a broader interest in the application of new field techniques (such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), and of GIS tools and hydrodynamic models to investigate environmental issues, such as coastal erosion and extreme wave events.
On the web, I am present on different platforms. For research I mostly use Mendeley, Researchgate, Linkedin, Google Scholar and OrcID.
