Andrea Camia

Dr. Andrea Camia, Research Scientist at the IES since 2004. He is in charge of supporting the coordination for the operation and development of the European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS), and of carrying out scientific research in the fields of forest fires and climate change, fire history, fire danger rating, long term fire risk in Europe. He also supports the development of the European Forest Data Centre (EFDAC), the EC focal point for forest information in Europe. He holds a PhD in Forest Sciences by the University of Turin (Italy, 1995) and counts on a scientific expertise developed participating in several international, national and regional research projects on forest management and wildland fires. Before joining the JRC he was lecturer at the University of Turin (98-03) and the University of Palermo (96-98; 00-03) of Silviculture, Wildland fires, Forest Information Systems, Statistics. Contracted by the Dept. AGROSELVITER of the University of Turin for 15 years (89-03) collaborating to the scientific and technical management of several research projects on forest management and wildland fire prevention and modeling. As professional forester he also worked (95-03), contracted by private companies or public institutions, on projects of vegetation mapping, fuel modeling, forest inventory, forest and fire management planning of National Parks and Italian Regions.
