Rosa VICARI
Communication officer and PhD student Office: V430

I’m in charge of the communication activities of the HM&Co Laboratory at École des Ponts ParisTech since 2012. I contribute with my work to the scientific programme of the Chair Hydrology for Resilient Cities funded by Veolia and co-supported by regional and European research projects: RainGain and RadX@IdF on the use of high resolution weather radars to reduce the risks of pluvial floods in urban areas; Blue Green Dream to optimize synergies between green infrastructures and water management.

In November 2018 I defended my PhD thesis on the topic Digital traces of climate related risks: measuring the communication impact of Paris resilience strategy supervised by Daniel Schertzer and involving as jury members: Roberto Grandi (referee), Bologna University; Marie Claire ten Veldhuis (referee), Delft University of Technology; David Chavalarias, CNRS – Institut de Systèmes Complexes IdF; Massimiano Bucchi, Trento University; Dimitri Solomatine, Unesco-IHE) .

My main research interests concern digital media, e-government, evaluating the impact of science outreach on urban resilience, urban resilience metrics, big data exploration techniques, advanced text mining, network representation.

Graduated with a Master degree in public, political and social communication, I studied at the University of Bologna, the University of Montreal and the Chelsea College in London. After several years of collaboration an Italian television broadcaster (TV2000), I specialised in environmental communication, with two years of activity in the field of consulting on sustainable development projects.
