Giorgio De Donno graduated cum laude in 2007 in Environmental Engineering at the "Sapienza" University of Rome. In 2012, he defended a PhD thesis in Environmental Engineering - Applied Geophysics, at the "Sapienza" University of Rome, entitled "Complex Resistivity and Spectral Induced Polarization techniques for environmental applications". He is currently Associate Professor in Applied Geophysics at the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering of “Sapienza”, where he was employed as a Researcher from 2019 to 2022 and as psot-doc researcher from 2013 to 2017. In 2018, he achieved the national Associate Professor Qualification (ASN) in Applied Geophysics. He is lecturer of Environamental Geophysics and Engineering Geophsyics in the M.Sc. course programmes of Sapienza (Rome and Latina).
He is member (since 2010) of EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers) and of the Italian Group of Solid Earth Geophysics (GNGTS and EAGE-SEG Italian section, since 2008). He has served as Associate Editor for Near Surface Geophysics and as a reviewer for several international geophysical journals (Geophysics, Geophysical Journal International, Journal of Geophysical Research, Geophysical Prospecting, e Journal of Applied Geophysics).
Since 2007, he has involved in national and international research projects concerning the application of geophysical techniques for natural resources assessment, mapping of sink-hole and cavity risk-prone areas, characterization of contaminated sites and landfills, diagnosis of civil works (dams, airports, tunnels), monitoring of cultural heritage. His main research interests are: i) the development of new theoretical formations and numerical algorithms for modelling and inversion of electrical resistivity and induced polarization tomography data (ERT and IPT); ii) the assessment and reduction of uncertainty related to the reconstruction of buried anomalies through ERT; iii) the combination of P- and S-wave seismic refraction tomography, ERT and Ground Penetrating Radar for subsoil characterization and diagnosis of existing structures.
