Short CV

Summary of scientific activities

Sabina Porfido  is engaged in research for the evaluation and reduction of the natural hazards.

The research activities have been addressed mainly to the study of:

  • Recent and historical seismicity, macroseismic studies, seismic microzonation.
  • Seismotectonic processes and definition of seismogenic areas.
  • Study of induced seismic effects: primary and secondary ground effects.
  • New macroseismic scale for the evaluation of the effects induced on the environment (INQUA scale, 2003-2004; ESI scale, 2007).
  • Natural hazards connected to hydrogeological events. Historical floods in the Campania Region.
  • Coastal Hazards
  • Environment, land use and resilience

She has participated in numerous national (CNR-PFG, CNR-GNDT, CNR-GNDCI, MURST, GARG, GEOSED, ITHACA APAT, PRIN, PON,  RETE Natura 2000 Basilicata, INGV-OV-Protezione civile; EMERGEO-INGV) and international research projects (INQUA-TERPRO, EEE Catalogue ISPRA; Cooperazione Bilaterale Italia-Ungheria (CNR-MTA); IODP-Campi Flegrei; Proyecto de red interuniversitaria regional Italo-Centroamericana en análisis de los fenómenos naturales para la evaluación de la peligrosidad en Centro América (Ministero Affari Esteri-Cooperazione allo sviluppo); Accordo bilaterale Italia-Moldavia.
