Isabella Bordi was born in Belforte del Chienti (MC), Italy, in 1967. She received her degree in physics in 1993 at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy, discussing a thesis on "Precision measurements of the polar flattening of the sun." The study was carried out under the supervision of Professor A. Egidi and B. Caccin in collaboration with Professor S. Sofia of the Yale University, NASA. From 1993 to 1996, she was a Research Assistant at the Department of Mathematics and Physics, University of Camerino, Camerino, Italy, under the supervision of Professor A. Sutera. From 1997 to 2000, she won a fellowship at the same university on the "Effects of infrared radiation on climate." From 2000, she is a Research Assistant at the Department of Physics, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy. She is a Reviewer of several international scientific journals such as Water Resources Management, Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, Journal of Geophysical Research, International Journal of Climatology, Theoretical and Applied Climatology, Journal of Hydrology, and Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences. She is a Member of EWRA and EGU. She actively participated as a Coinvestigator in several EU and national projects. Her research activities are (i) general circulation of the atmosphere (atmospheric regimes, baroclinic adjustment, Eady model, baroclinic instability and tropopause height, role of the stratosphere, and multiple jets in the troposphere), (ii) climate variability (drought indices, drought forecasting, space-time variability of drought, extreme dry/wet events, and precipitation regimes), (iii) atmospheric radiation (radiative transfer models, clouds parameterization schemes, and energy budget models), and (iv) remote sensing (scientific requirements for atmospheric measurements from space, ground-based and GPS RO measurements).
