He is also the Director of the Centre of Natural Hazards and Disaster Science (CNDS), which currently supports about 30 early career scientists (PhD candidates and postdocs in social, engineering and earth science) in three Swedish universities (www.cnds.se). Giuliano aims to understand how (and why) the interplay between social, technical and physical processes can generate risks, crises or disasters. His research focuses on natural hazards, including droughts and floods.

Giuliano has been the recipient of international honors, including the Plinius Medal by the European Geosciences Union (EGU), the Witherspoon Lecture Award by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), and the Consolidator Grant by the European Research Council (ERC). In the period 2017-2019, he was the Chair of Panta Rhei–Everything Flows, the global research initiative of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) bringing together hundreds of scientists worldwide doing research on water and society. Currently, he also directs a large research group as the PI of the ERC project HydroSocialExtremes: Unravelling the Mutual Shaping of Hydrological Extremes and Society (www.hydrosocialextremes.org).
