Key Facts


Enrico obtained a bachelor degree in Environmental Engineering at Polytechnic University of Bari, in December 2013. During his master degree in Environmental Engineering at the University of Padova he increased his interest in hydraulics and hydrology and he was hosted by EAWAG research centre for a course in statistical hydrology, from May to June 2016. He completed his master degree with a thesis developed in Costa Rica between October 2016 and January 2017 on statistical characterization of streamflow regimes. 

He passed the qualifying examination as an Environmental Engineer in September 2017.

In October 2017 he joined the the Doctoral Programme for Water Resource Systems as a joint PhD candidate between TU Vienna and Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) Doctoral Training Unit in Water Sciences: Hydro-CSI ( He is in the Water Safety and Security Unit at the Department of Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) at LIST (working in the Catchment and Eco-hydrology research group).
