Carlo Camporeale was born in Torino (Italy), on March 2nd, 1976.

Since August 2014 he is Full Professor at Politecnico di Torino, Department of Environmental and Land Engineering. He is member of the Group of Environmental Fluid Mechanics.

Scientific Education

2001: Master's Degree in Environmental Engineering at Politecnico di Torino in July 2001 with a thesis on the "Analysis of coherent structures in wall turbulence: classical methods and phase space".

2005: Ph.D. in Hydraulic Engineering at the Polytechnic of Turin with thesis on "On the short- and long-term behaviour on meandering rivers", supervised by Prof. Luca Ridolfi and Amilcare Porporato.

2019: Master's Degree in Physics of Complex Systems at University of Turin cum laude.


In September 2008 he received the "Torricelli Award" of the GII ("Gruppo Italiano di Idraulica") for the best young italian researcher in hydraulics in the years 2006/2008.

Scientific production

He is author of more than 80 pubblications on ISI peer-reviewed international journals and attended nearly twenty national and international conferences. His scientific activity mainly concerns fluid mechanics with a particular attention to the morphological instability of geophysical flows, river mechanics, stochastic modeling in biomorphodynamics and hemodynamics.
