Over the last 5 years (4+ of which in Italy) I have published 18 scientific papers in major international peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary journals, 9 of which have already more than 10 citations according to Google scholar (excluding self-citations), for an aggregate JCR 5-year Impact Factor of 45.2. Given the interdisciplinary and integrated nature of my research, I have been focusing on publishing in the best specialized journals within JCR Q1, including Environmental Modelling and Software (5-year Impact Factor-IF: 5), Ecological Economics (4.2), Journal of Hydrology (4), Agricultural Water Management (3.4) and Water Resources Management (2.4). I am first (9) or second author (6) in 16 of my publications, most of which have been produced without the involvement of my PhD supervisor, demonstrating a promising track record of independent research.
