Luigi Lombardo

My name is Luigi Lombardo and I am an Assistant Professor at ITC, Faculty Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation since January 2019. My hobby is to do scientific research in the field of geomorphology and statistics. And, my job is to share this knowledge with other people with the same interest and with the public. For this reason, I joined the EGU early career scientists of the Natural Hazard division (NhET) in 2016. Since then I contributed to the activities of the group and now, together with part of the team we will manage the Natural Hazard blog of the EGU. It goes without saying it, but being Italian, I love cooking and has also worked as a sous chef in my youth.
