Hi everybody and welcome!

My name is Gabriele Villarini, and this is my professional website.

In July 2008, I finished my Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Iowa under the supervision of Prof. Witold Krajewski. After graduation, I worked as a researcher in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University with Prof. James Smith. I was also a Willis Research Fellow as part of the Willis Research Network.

I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Iowa, and the Associate Director of IIHR-Hydroscience & Engineering. My research group broadly focuses on flood hydrology, extreme events, hydroclimatology, climate predictions and projections, and economic impacts of natural hazards. I am a member of the Iowa Flood Center, which is the only university-based center devoted solely to flood-related research and education.

You can find here a list of opportunities within my research group. If you have questions, feel free to email me at “gabriele-villarini at uiowa.edu”
