Dr Davide Motta

Assistant Professor

Department: Mechanical and Construction Engineering

Davide Motta is a Civil and Environmental Engineer.

His research is on archaeohydrology, sustainable water management, downstream impact of dams, river morphodynamics, water quality, and artificial intelligence applications for water related problems.

His academic track record, as well as his extensive industry experience in engineering consultancy focusing on Hydrology and Hydraulics (H&H) numerical modelling, give him expertise in a broad portfolio of water-related problems at the boundary between the natural and built environments.
