Hurricanes are one of the most incredible atmospheric phenomena known to humankind. Sources of inspiration for many great adventure stories, hurricanes are often associated to devastation and havoc. In this talk, we will understand what causes them, the risks for Hawaii as well as Italy, and how they will respond to climate change.
Dr. Giuseppe Torri was born in a small village in the Italian countryside near Brescia. Growing up cuddled by the thickest fogs and with spectacular congestus clouds being blown in the sky like white balloons by the Alps nearby, his curiosity for atmospheric phenomena started from a very early age. He studied Physics at the University of Milan and specialized in Theoretical Physics during his doctorate at Imperial College in London. He worked as an Assistant Researcher at the Harvard University Center for the Environment, focusing on tropical clouds and thunderstorms. He's currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
