Verolino Andrea is a volcanologist who is currently working on volcano risk and hazard-related aspects in Southeast Asia at the Earth Observatory of Singapore, where he is a Research Fellow. His background is in physical volcanology, particularly in phreatomagmatic monogenetic systems.
He studied Earth Sciences at the University of Rome La Sapienza, where he also obtained his Master's degree in Exploration Geology. Andrea was awarded a highly competitive doctoral scholarship to conduct his PhD at the University of Otago.
He is a member of several geological societies, including the European Geosciences Union (EGU), the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of Earth’s Interior, and the International Association of Sedimentologists.
During his PhD, Andrea published three research papers as the first author and co-authored a fourth.
He supervised a Master's student’s project, part of which is published in Verolino, A., White, J. D. L., & Zimanowski, B. (2018). Particle transport in subaqueous eruptions: an experimental investigation. Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research.
At present, Andrea is supervising an ASE undergraduate student project. He is also working on understudied basaltic volcanic fields in Southeast Asia to understand the potential hazards involved in case of eruption and how these hazards can affect the local populations. Other projects Andrea is working on include: risk and hazard assessments of selected on-land volcanoes in Indonesia and Philippines, and hazard assessment of submarine volcanoes in Southeast Asia.
