Giulia Mengoli is a PhD student at Imperial College London, working under the supervision of Professors Colin Prentice and Sandy Harrison.

Giulia’s PhD project is carried out in collaboration with the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF) in Reading, co-supervised by Anna Agustí-Panareda. Her PhD work centres on the deployment of a new ecosystem model that combines satellite observations with eco-evolutionary optmality theory to predict canopy-level conductance and photosynthesis and improve near-real-time weather forecasting.
