Pietro Teatini (male)

Received the Hydraulic Civil Engineering degree with honours in 1991 at the University of Padova, Italy. In 1994 he received the International Award ``Paolo Gatto'', Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, for the modeling of the aquifer system underlying the Venice Lagoon. He is Associate Professor in Hydrology and Hydraulic Engineering at the Dept. of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering, University of Padova (Italy). He is president of M3E S.r.l., spin-off of the University of Padova. He is associated researcher at the Italian National Research Council, the Key Lab of Earth Fissure and Geologic Disasters (Namjing, China), Key Lab of Land Subsidence Monitoring and Prevention (Shanghai, China). He is chair of the IAHS/UNESCO-IHP Land Subsidence International Initiative (LaSII). His research interests concern modelling of flow in confined/phreatic aquifer systems, land subsidence due to subsurface fluid production, natural sediment compaction, and peat oxidation, geomechanical issues (e.g., caprock integrity, induced seismicity, stress analyses in faulted basins) related to fluid withdrawal/injection from/into the subsurface, long-term evolution of transitional environments (wetlands, deltas, etc.). He has been involved as PI or scientist in national and international research projects, including programs funded by the European Union, the European Space Agency, UNESCO-IGCP programme, Italian national and regional governments, the Venice Water Authority, ENI E&P, ENEL, STOGIT, GAS PLUS, EDISON. He is the author and co-author of more than 130 publications in international journals. H index (Google Scholar) = 43.
