Stefano LO RUSSO Ph.D., is the Mayor of Torino and of the Metropolitan City of Torino since 27 October 2021.

Professor of Engineering geology, Hydrogeology, Petroleum and Mining Geology, Geothermal Energy in the DIATI at Politecnico di Torino. He was born in Torino (Italy) on October 15th, 1975. Graduated cum laude in Geological Sciences in 1999 he holds a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from Politecnico di Torino in 2004.

He was the Advisor to the Rector for the relations with the Russian Federation from July 2017 to October 2021.

He was Assistant Professor at Politecnico from 2007 to 2014 and Associate Professor from 2014 to 2017. He is member of the IAH (International Association of Hydrogeologists), EGU (European Geosciences Union), AIGA (Italian Association of Applied Geology). He is co-Founder and board member of EST (Energy Security and Transition Lab) at the Energy Center of Politecnico di Torino and member of the Scientific Committee of the GEAM Association.

Visiting Professor at:

-Peter The Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (St. Petersburg, Russian Federation)

- Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas (Moscow, Russian Federation)

- MGIMO University - Moscow State Institute of International Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation (Moscow, Russian Federation)

Invited Distinguished Lecturer at the University of Queensland (Brisbane, QLD Australia)

His scientific activity focuses mainly on the low-enthalpy geothermal systems and the hydrogeological problems related to the protection, management and planning of groundwater resources. Other scientific interests regard the engineering geologic mapping through innovative techniques of digital photo-interpretation and remote sensing, the study of the deep-seated gravitational slope deformations (DSGSDs), the rock-fall risk analysis and mitigation, the energy security and transition, the raw materials and the mining sustainability.
