Short Bio

Since 2016, Enrico Bertuzzo is Associate Professor of Hydrology at the Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics of the University of Venice Ca’ Foscari, Italy. He received a MSc in Environmental Engineering and a PhD in Hydrology from University of Padua, Italy. He was appointed visiting researcher at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Princeton University (USA) in 2007. From 2008 to 2016 he held a Post-Doc and then a senior scientist position at the Laboratory of Ecohydrology, Ecole Politechique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland.

Research Themes

His research interests focus on hydrological controls on large scale ecological and ecosystem processes. In this area, he has been particularly active on the development, validation and testing of spatially distributed epidemiological models of waterborne diseases and zoonoses (including cholera, schistosomiasis and proliferative kidney diseases of salmonids) for real time prediction and for the evaluation of alternative intervention strategies. Throughout his academic career he has also studied macroecological and biodiversity patterns in river networks and complex landscapes. Recently, he has moved his research interest towards the cycling of carbon in river networks.
