Giorgio Cassiani is currently an Associate Professor in applied geophysics at the Department of Geoscience, University of Padua, Italy. He graduated in mining engineering from the University of Trieste, Italy, in 1991, and he has been awarded a Ph.D. degree in applied geophysics from the same university (1996) and the M.S. (1995) and Ph.D. (1997) degrees in civil and environmental engineering from Duke University, NC, USA. He worked at OGS Trieste and at ENI-Agip in Milan as an Environmental Specialist. From 1999 to 2001, he was a lecturer in contaminant hydrogeology at Lancaster University, UK. From 2001 to 2006, he was a lecturer in applied geophysics at the Department of Geological Sciences and Geotechnology at the University of Milan-Bicocca, Italy. His main research interest is in geophysical methods for environmental applications, with particular regard to the characterization of contaminated sites, for geotechnical characterization, and for hydrological purposes (hydrogeophysics). He has authored about 50 scientific papers in international refereed journals and about 140 papers and talks for scientific conferences.
