Claudia Zoccarato

Claudia Zoccarato (female)

Claudia Zoccarato received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Environmental Engineering in 2009 and 2012 at the University of Padova, Italy. In 2016, she got her Ph.D. from the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering Sciences at University of Padova, where she is currently working as Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering. The thesis project, focused on the geomechanical modelling of hydrocarbon reservoirs and the development of inverse methods for reservoir characterization, won the Eni “Gustavo Sclocchi” Theses Awards 2016 for Doctors of Philosophy and University Graduates in Petroleum Engineering, Geo-Sciences and other disciplines related to the Oil & Gas Industry. In her PostDoc research project, Claudia is studying the activation of faults due to human-induced operations by developing a Bayesian framework to quantify and possibly reduce the uncertainties linked to the geomechanical modelling of the ground response due to subsurface fluid injection and/or extraction. Her recent research interests include the development and application of numerical models for the simulation of Managed Aquifer Recharge and the long-term dynamics of transitional environments (lagoons, deltas) accounting for natural compaction and accretion. She is author and co-author of more than 10 publications in international journals. H index (Google Scholar) = 6.
