Valentina Laface


Post-doctoral Research Fellow

Personal information

Valentina Laface (female) has obtained a Ph.D degree in Ocean Engineering at UNIRC. Her research work concerns the analysis of long time series of wave data for investigating the long-term statistics of Ocean Storms as well as for wave energy exploitation. She has developed a model for estimating return values of significant wave height starting from the actual storm sequence at a given site. Valentina Laface during her Ph.D programme has collaborated with the Technical University of Lisbon (Portugal) for five months and has won a scholarship at Ifrémer research centre (Brest, France), where she has spent one month. During her Post Doc she worked in the context of TEN-T project “Study for the development of the green mobility in the port of Civitavecchia through the implementation of the pilot technology REWEC 3” and has established international collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology (Madras, Chennai, India) and the Columbia University (New York, United States), within the Marie Curie project “PLENOSE”.
