Gabriele Manoli studies water supplies, energy exchange and the carbon cycle in urban and suburban systems. His interdisciplinary approach unites environmental technology, infrastructure and urban planning. He is currently investigating the worldwide trend towards urban densification and the effects of altering the urban climate (e.g. through greening measures).
In collaboration with EcoCloud Prof. Manoli will be investigating urban structure and dynamics, in particular modelling the evolution urban systems in terms of their development through time and space.
