Alessandra Sabina Lanotte
Alessandra Sabina Lanotte studied physics at La Sapienza University, Rome, Italy. In July 1995, she got her M.S. degree in physics from La Sapienza University with a thesis on "Turbulence in viscoelastic flows" under the supervision of Professor Roberto Benzi and Professor G. Parisi. Form 1996 until 1999, she did her Ph.D. degree in physics at the Observatoire de la Cote d'Azur, in Nice (France), with an EU Marie Curie Grant—Training and Mobility of Researchers. Her Ph.D. supervisors are Dr. Massimo Vergassola and Dr. Uriel Frisch. Her Ph.D. thesis is about "Anisotropy and structures in the turbulent transport." From April 2000 until December 2001, she worked as a Postdoc with Professor Luca Biferale, at the Physics Department of Tor Vergata University in Rome. The research subject was "Anisotropy in turbulence." Starting from December 2001, she has a research permanent position at the Italian "Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche" in the Institute for Atmospheric Sciences and Climate. Since then, she integrated her interests for the statistical properties of ideal turbulent flows (statistically homogeneous and isotropic), with a new interest for realistic, geophysical flows: multiphase flows and planetary boundary layer flows. In particular, she has been working for some years on the Lagrangian transport of inertial particles in turbulent flows and on the role of turbulence in the formation of cumulus clouds.
