Marianne Milano

I am a hydrologist concerned by the complex interaction between climate, human pressures and river flows in Switzerland, and more specifically in the canton of Vaud.

I develop integrated hydrological modeling approaches to describe the current state of pressures applied on water resources and to identify areas most vulnerable to climatic and/or anthropogenic changes. I have a strong will to invest these issues in projects bringing together scientists, water managers and water users. This helps understanding the heterogeneities of catchments and the water management rules currently set up. Finally, I assess the capacity of adaptation strategies to reduce water tensions and to maintain the current water security state of the canton.
