Francesco Trotta

Francesco is a junior researcher at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Bologna, Italy. He joins MSEAS for Summer/Fall 2019 as an MIT Visiting Scholar. One of his main goals while at MSEAS is to complete joint research on multiscale multi-dynamics relocatable ocean modeling for forecasting, including deterministic and stochastic predictions.

Francesco’s research interests span the fields of high-resolution ocean modelling, submesoscale processes in the ocean, and extreme value analysis. He is part of a research group which developed the relocatable ocean platform SURF (Structured and Unstructured grid Relocatable ocean platform for Forecasting), based on the NEMO code.
