Dr. Lazzari obtained his Bachelor’s degree with honors in Geological Sciences in 1993 and a Ph.D. in Earth Sciences in 1999. He won a 2-year post-doctoral scholarship at the University of Bari and a Socrates/Erasmus scholarship at the University of Portsmouth (Great Britain). Dr. Lazzari received a diploma of Specialization in “Mineralogy and Petrology applied to the study and recovery of Cultural Heritage” in 1999. He is a full-time Researcher from 2001 at CNR-IBAM. In 2012 Dr. Lazzari obtained the national scientific qualification as an associate professor in Engineering Geology, Physical Geography, and Geomorphology. Since 2001, he has been joining several national and regional projects on topics concerning geomorphology, engineering geology, natural hazards (seismic and landslide risk), GIS and geostatistics methods, geotourism, geoarchaeology, and pedology. Specifically, his research activity is focused on natural and anthropic hazard for the conservation of cultural and monumental heritage. The main adopted methods are morphometric and geostatistical analyses in GIS, geomorphological survey and mapping, thematic cartography in a GIS environment and quantitative evaluation of geomorphological hazards.
