Enrica Viparelli


Dr. Viparelli's research area is water resources engineering. Her major interests are primarily related to the development of large-scale models of river morphodynamics that can be used for river and coastal restoration, and to study sediment transport, erosion and deposition at laboratory and field scales. Specific research topics includes 1) transport, deposition and erosion of non-uniform sediment in fluvial, deltaic and submarine environments, 2) transport and the overbank deposition of very fine sediment in rivers, and 3) the effects that changes in land use and climate may have on rivers and floodplains.
