George obtained his bachelor’s degree in
physics and his master’s degree in geophysics from Universita’
degli Studi Roma Tre (Rome, Italy). After graduation,
he worked for the Italian Institute for Atmospheric
Sciences and Climate, where he contributed in designing
and realizing a new micro-lidar for vertical atmospheric
sounding. George joined the UCI Earth System Science
Department as a graduate student in 2009, and he has
been conducting his research on ecosystem-climate interactions
under the supervision of Dr. Michael Goulden.
His research is based on integrating eld measurements
with remote sensing imagery. Once he graduates from
UCI, George is looking for a job that would allow him to
work right at the border where technology development
meets important scientic questions in earth sciences.
