Alessio Collalti

Alessio Collalti has a Master Science Degree in Natural Sciences and a Ph.D. in Forest Ecology. His background concerns Forest Ecology, Carbon and Nitrogen Cycle, Forest and Vegetation Modelling, particularly with regard to vegetation numerical modelling and response under natural and anthropogenic stress, including climate change impacts and forest management scenarios. He has been working at the University of Tuscia, at the Foundation euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change, and at the National Research Council of Italy, where he developed the 3D-CMCC-FEM (Three Dimensional - Coupled Model Carbon Cycle - Forest Ecosystem Module). He is a senior researcher at the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in the Institute for Agricultural and Forestry Systems in the Mediterranean (ISAFOM).
