Bio: Salvatore Straface was born in 1967. He is married with two children and, from 2002, is Assistant Professor of Environmental Hydraulics at the Faculty of Engineering of University of Calabria, where he works at the Department of Soil Conservation. Just after receiving his graduation in Civil Engineering (Hydraulics) from the University of Calabria, in 1993, he held Philosophy Doctorate in the 1997 with the dissertation “A numerical model for the groundwater flow and transport based on the cell method” at the University of Calabria. From second half of 90s he was Lecturer for several classes such as: Subsurface Hydrology, Environmental Hydraulics and Remediation of contaminated sites, in which he acted as chairman in the relative boards of examiners. Moreover he were Advisor of many graduation Thesis relative to the Engineering Faculty of the University of Calabria. From January 2003 is a member of the PhD Counsil for “Hydraulic Engineering for Environment and Territory”, a joint PhD school between the Polytechnic of Bari, the University of Basilicata and the University of Calabria. He is reviewer for several international journals as Advances in Water Resources, Water Resources Research, Journal of Hydrology, Ground Water, Hydrogeology Journal, etc. He was Principal Investigator of several national and international Research Projects. He was invited as a Visiting Scientist at the University of Arizona and Boise State University, where in 2007 he organized a Summer Field School in two weeks entitled: "Hydrogeophysics: Theory, Methods, and Modeling." The research activity has produced to date, more than 50 publications in journals, many of which ones included in Journal Citation Reports. His research activity has been focused mainly on hydrodynamic and hydrodispersive parameter estimation, numerical solution of flow and transport in saturated and unsaturated soils. In these fields, his research has provided a great impetus to the development of the Hydrogeophysics and the Macroscopic Cellular Automata.
