Giuliano Di Baldassarre is a professor of surface water hydrology and environmental analysis at the Department of Earth Sciences of Uppsala University, as well as the director of the Centre of Natural Hazards and Disaster Science (CNDS). His research deals with risks, crises or disasters resulting from the interplay between water, environment and society with a focus on human impacts on (and responses to) hydroclimatic extremes, i.e. droughts and floods. He aims to both advance fundamental science and inform policy in the context of disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and sustainability.
Giuliano has been the recipient of international honours, including the Plinius Medal by the European Geosciences Union (EGU), the Witherspoon Lecture Award by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), and the Consolidator Grant by the European Research Council (ERC). He was one of the leaders (also serving as the Chair between 2017-2019) of Panta Rhei, the global research initiative on water-society interactions of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS). Giuliano published more than 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals, including multidisciplinary ones such as Nature Sustainability, Science Advances and Nature.
