Erika Coppola, PhD, is Research scientist at The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP). Her current research activity is focusing on regional climate using mainly regional climate models and she is interested in land-atmosphere interactions; monsoon climate; regional hydrological cycle; climate extremes; climate variability and change; flood risk estimation. She is coordinating the hydrological model research activity and development of CHyM hydrological model and in particular the coupling of the hydrological model with regional climate model (RegCM) for land-use impact studies and climate change impact on future water resources.

Lectio magistralis: “An algorithm for discovery” by prof. Mauro Giacca In current times, it is equally complicate for the lay public to understand the progress of science and for the young generations to pursue a scientific career. On the one hand, this difficulty favors the surge of anti scientific sentiments in the society while, on the other, it frustrates the passion for science. I will discuss here a sort of algorithm on how to navigate the complexities of a scientific career. As medical doctors and physicists use algorithms to districate themselves in complex situations, an algorithm based on good principles can be helpful for a passionate approach towards science.
