Biographical details

Federico Maggi joined the School of Civil Engineering in July 2009 as a Lecturer in Fluids and Environment.

He obtained his ME in 1999 from the Polytechnic of Turin, Italy, with a thesis on nonlinear prediction of complex signals such as from deterministic chaos and turbulence. He received his PhD in 2005 from the Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, with a comprehensive experimental and modelling work on turbulence-induced flocculation of suspended cohesive sediment.

In 2005, Federico moved to Duke University, North Carolina, USA, where he became involved in advanced mathematical modelling of soil fluid mechanics.

In 2006, Federico joined the University of California, Berkeley, USA, where his interests widened to soils physics and biogeochemistry. That same year he joined the Earth Science Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley USA, where he remains a guest scientist.

Research interests

My research concentrates on geophysical flows of water, transport and fate of chemical species, and bio-physical processes linking nutrient cycles, plants, and soil microbial communities. The target of my research includes water and soil processes and quality, ecohydrology, biogeochemistry, environmental engineering and protection, and ecosystem service and sustainability.

Current projects

  • The BRTSim project. BRTSim is an advanced multi-phase and multi-species general-purpose solver for advection-dispersion-reactions with a wide spectrum of applications in environmental engineering.
  • Sediment-nutrient-microbial interactions dominate the quality of surface waters, their response to environmental stresses from agrochemicals, and the geomorphology of riverine and estuarine ecosystems. Projects in this area include experimental works with unique facilities designed and build in the School.
  • The theory of chemical kinetics and the thermodynamic theory have recently demonstrated their capabilities to generalized the way how biochemical and chemical reactions occur. In this project, new advances will be developed based on our recent achievements.
  • Global environmental change include climate, soil and contaminations. A number of projects are available to investigate in great detail the theoretical foundations and the potential applications to resolve these issues in a rapidly changing environment.
  • Nutrient cycles in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems are the drivers that sustain life. Projects are open to described in as mechanistic way as possible the chemical, physical and biological processes that govern the carbon, nitrogen and sulphur cycles.
