Alessandro Simoni is an Associate Professor in Engineering Geology at the University of Bologna (BiGeA Dept.) since 2015.
Currently teaching Engineering Geology, Rock Mechanics and Site investigation techniques.
He got his Ph.D. in Earth Sciences in 1999. Visiting researcher at MIT, University of Oxford, University of Melbourne and others.
Alessandro participated to several national and international research projects and reported his results in more than 30 publications in international peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings.
His research activity has been traditionally based on experimental on-site monitoring of landslide processes and includes landslide hazard evaluation and risk mitigation, soil and rock mechanics, slope hydrology and hydrogeology.
During the last decade, the use of InSAR to investigate geological processes has been object of constant development and became object of further research.
