Marco G. Giometto
Marco Giometto received his BS and MS degrees in civil engineering from the University of Padua, and a joint PhD in civil and environmental engineering from Braunschweig TU University and the University of Florence (2014). In 2016, he earned a second PhD in mechanical engineering from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, where he won the EDME Award for the best thesis in mechanical engineering. Before joining Columbia University in 2018, Giometto held postdoctoral positions at the University of British Columbia and at the Center for Turbulence Research, which is jointly operated by Stanford University and NASA Ames. His research focuses on fluid mechanics and turbulence. Insights from his research have implications in geophysics, engineering, biology, and energy technologies, where heat and mass transfer, evaporation, and skin friction often determine system performance or environmental impact.
