Daniele is a Ph.D. student of the Civil and Coastal Engineering Department. He is part of Canestrelli’s lab, which focuses on the improvement of numerical hydrodynamic and eco-morphodynamic models in coastal, estuarine and riverine environments.

Daniele graduated in Civil Hydraulic Engineering at the University of Padova. His interests mainly gravitate around two topics: environmental sustainability and numerical modeling of coastal hydrodynamics. The experience gained in 2018 as a numerical modeler in a Paduan environmental and hydraulic engineering studio, gave him the opportunity to further investigate these topics, linking the concept of hydraulic risk to the issue of environmental sustainability.


Title: Understanding how the release of E. coli and Nutrients from septic tanks into the Guana-Tolomato-Matanzas estuary and adjacent ocean affects human, plant and animal health

Environmental sustainability – guana-tolomato-matanzas national estuarine research reserve – icoast – septic tanks

His research aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goals 3 (Good Health and Well-Being), 6 (Clear Water and Sanitation), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), 114 (Life Below Water) and 15 (life on Land).
