Paolo Stocchi is a Tenure Track researcher at the Department of Coastal Systems of the NIOZ Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research in Texel (NL). Paolo's background spans geophysics, geology, glaciology, oceanography, climatology. He graduated at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences of the University of Urbino "Carlo Bo" (Italy) in 2003. Paolo obtained his Ph.D in Geophysics at the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2007 and since then he has held research positions at TU Delft (NL), Utrecht University (NL) and NIOZ (NL).

Paolo's research focuses on the reconstruction of past sea-level fluctuations by integrating numerical models for ice sheets and glacial isostatic adjustment with geological and archaeological field data. Paolo is currently involved in several national and international projects and cooperations that aim at investigating the connections between cryosphere, solid Earth, oceans and bio-ecology by means of dynamical couplings.

  2. Ice sheets, ocean and sediments dynamics during glacial-interglacial cycles: in collaboration with Utrecht University, MARUM (Bremen, Germany), Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand)
  3. SeaRiseNZ: future scenarios of sea-level rise in New Zealand and Globally (in collaboration with Victoria University of Wellington)
  4. A multiscale biophysical approach to reveal the role of oxygen in reef resilience: in collaboration with TU Delft, VU Amsterdam, CARMABI Research Station (Curaçao), Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Sand Diego State University (USA)
