Marco D’Oria is currently a Researcher (fixed-term, RTD-b) at the Department of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Parma. Marco received his PhD from the University of Parma (Italy) on March 2010 discussing the thesis “Characterization of aquifer hydraulic parameters: from Theis to hydraulic tomography”. During his PhD, he spent six months as Short Term Scholar at the United States Geological Survey (USGS), Wisconsin Water Science Center (Middleton, WI, USA) working with Dr. Michael N. Fienen on Bayesian approaches to the inverse problem. After the PhD, he was a Research Fellow (2010-2015) and a Researcher (fixed-term, RTD-a, 2015-2019) at the University of Parma. Marco’s academic teaching experience has involved several courses: Hydraulic Engineering Software (graduate students); Dams and Weir (graduate students); Laboratory for Hydraulic Measurement and Controls (undergraduate and graduate students); Exercises for Hydraulics Structures (undergraduate and graduate students); Fluid Mechanics as supplementary activities for distance learning classes (Nettuno project). His main research interests are: inverse problems in surface hydrology and hydraulics; inverse problems in groundwater modeling; groundwater, hydraulic and hydrology model calibration; impacts of climate change on meteorological variables; impacts of climate change on water resources; effects of climate change on drought; flood risk analysis. He is supervisor or team member of several scientific agreements between the University of Parma and other public and private institutions dealing with: tests on physical scale models (dam, still basin, scour at bridge piers), field and laboratory data collection, numerical modeling in groundwater and open channel flow, hydrological modeling, rainfall and temperature trend analysis, climate changes and their implications in the management of water supply, among others.
