Caroline Rosello

PhD Student

An accomplished cell biologist and entrepreneur who has decided to pivot her career toward water and environmental management. Aiming to develop a professional career in land and water management. Has completed the Master of Integrated Water Management at Griffith University (Brisbane, Australia) and currently realising a Ph.D. in Anticipatory Planning and Water Resource Management.

Current research aims at identifying methods and tools to aid decision-makers in designing long-term plans, able to manage uncertainties (e.g., climate change) related to how the future may unfold.

Enjoys working within a team environment together with the challenge of carrying through individual tasks. Sociable, optimistic, hard worker, and curious, wanting to help others and protecting the environment.
