Professional summary

Fabrizio is a soil biogeochemist modeller expert in interdisciplinary research encompassing process-based and statistical modelling, experimental research for soil GHG emissions, and participatory methods that aim to assess how agroecosystems can be transformed to be more sustainable and resilient to climate change. His other interests include:

  • Biogeochemical process-based soil models.
  • Statistical modelling (Generalized Additive Mixed Models).
  • Multi-criteria decision-making methods to assess decision processes and contexts in sustainable scenarios (Analytic Hierarchical Process, Analytic Network Process, DEMATEL).
  • Quantitative spatial analysis.
  • Participatory decision support tools for trade-off and synergy analysis in agricultural settings (e.g. Cool Farm Tool).
