Alessandro Anav, PhD in Forest Ecology, is a permanent researcher specialized in regional climate modeling. From 2009 to 2011 he was post-doctoral fellow at Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique (France), from 2011 to 2015 he worked as research fellow at University of Exeter (UK), then he worked as post-doctoral fellow at Institute for Sustainable Plant Protection (Italian National Research Council).
Current research activities mostly focus on the development, application and validation of regional coupled ocean-atmosphere models as well as improvement and validation of chemistry transport models to simulate air quality and assess the impact of air pollution on human and ecosystems health. Additional research interest is also focused on the global carbon cycle and its interaction with the climate system.
He is author of 40 peer reviewed publications on international journals, and he contributed to the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published in 2014.
