Donatella Pasqualini


I am a physicist in the Computational Earth Science Group (Integrated Geosystem team ) in Earth and Environmental Sciences Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory (USA). I reached Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2001 as a Post Doc and converted in Research Scientist in 2005.

My general research interests and expertise lie in complex phenomena and modeling them by simulations with applications that range from geophysics to energy-socio-climate systems. I am focusing on the intersection of climate, energy, environment, and society to better understand their impacts. In particular, I am developing integrated dynamical models to comprehend the issues of energy resilience and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. 

My educational is as follows: B.S. and M.S. Trento University, Italy (physics); Ph.D., University of Trento, Italy (fluid dynamics, molecular dynamics simulation); Post Doc (2001-2005) and Research Scientist from 2005 at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
