|Steve, Guido Zolezzi and Christina talk around the Em3 in the Morris|
Library rotunda on SIU campus.
Dr. Zolezzi heads the European SMART
(Science for Management of Rivers and their Tidal Systems) program, an interdisciplinary doctoral partnership much like SIUC’s IGERT program.
I thought I understood urban rivers, but Dr. Zolezzi's research on the Kugart River
, in the Kyrgyz Republic, a great story of how Cold-War Soviet engineers struggled with design of a high-bedload urban channel, changed my view of urban channel hydraulics and sediment transport. Map link here.
A fantastic speaker in English and a charming man, Dr. Zolezzi is currently on sabbatical at Texas A & M University.
We set up an Emriver Em3 in SIUC’s Morris Library for a pre-lecture reception; we had a wonderful talk with Dr. Zolezzi there.
Thanks to our colleagues at SIUC for organizing this meeting, especially Nicholas Pinter.
Here are recent publications. I could not find a comprehensive list in English, these are from Dr. Zolezzi's CV in Italian(PDF)
