Alessandro Toffoli

Professor
The University of Melbourne

I have a wealth of experience in ocean and coastal engineering, physical oceanography and air-sea interactions, which includes research, teaching, consultancy, working at the Universities and industry. With a Master degree in Civil Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Turin (Italy) and PhD in Civil Engineering from the K.U. Leuven (Belgium), I went on working in shipping industry (DNV) in Norway, before beginning an academic career at several Universities. Since 2016, I held a position as an Associate Professor in Ocean Engineering at the University of Melbourne (Australia) and was promoted to Professor in Jan 2023. I am also Visiting Professor at K.U. Leuven (Belgium).

Alberto Alberello

Research Fellow
University of Adelaide

I am a physical oceanographer with expertise in nonlinear and rogue waves, wave breaking, wave turbulence and wave ice interaction. I developed familiarity with an extended range of experimental techniques applied to small and large scale physical experiments, field measurements and a number of numerical techniques. I currently work as research Fellow at the University of Adelaide and I hold a visiting appointment at The University of Melbourne. I studied at Swinburne University of Technology (PhD) and Politecnico di Milano (BSc and MSc).

Giulio Passerotti

PhD Student
The University of Melbourne

I am a PhD student in Ocean Engineering at The University of Melbourne under the supervision of Prof. Toffoli. I studied at Università di Torino (MSc) and Università degli Studi di Firenze (BSc). My main area of expertise is wave-ice interaction, floe size distribution and computer vision applied to sea ice. In winter 2022, I joined the 3-week SCALE (Southern oCean seAsonaL Experiment) Antarctic Expedition onboard the RV S.A. Agulhas II.

Ippolita Tersigni

PhD Candidate
The University of Melbourne

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Ocean Engineering at The University of Melbourne. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from Roma Tre University and my master’s degree from the University of Turin (Italy) in the Department of Environmental Sciences. My research fields are sea-ice-air interactions, sea-ice field and Satellite observations, and modeling. I participated in two mission campaigns on the Antarctic MIZ in Spring 2019 and Winter 2022, aboard the South African icebreaker S.A. Agulhas II within the framework of the international project SCALE (Southern oCean seAsonaL Experiment).
