Deborah Bassotto

PhD Student

University of Valencia

Deborah Bassotto has a keen interest in various geoscience topics, particularly when explored through the lens of machine learning. Her research interests span atmospheric and oceanographic physics, ecology, as well as climate informatics and causality. Currently, she is based at the University of València in Spain,  where she’s delving into the complexities of predicting and attributing climate extremes.

Her educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Geoscience and Environment (Université de Lausanne, Switzerland), followed by a Master’s degree in Climate Physics (Utrecht University, the Netherlands). Subsequently, Bassotto undertook an internship at Université de Lausanne, where she explored the drivers of heatwaves in Europe across historical and future models. Before this, she gained valuable experience in geochemistry at Utrecht University and contributed to research on microplastics in the Black Sea during her time in Italy.
