Paolo Pagano, a researcher at the University of Palermo. My research focus is the study of coronal mass ejections, from a modelling perspective. I am involved in science topic teams of the coronagraph Metis on board of Solar Orbiter and I have experience of MHD and magnetofrictional models. My contribution to Space Weather can be summarised in i) coupling of magneto frictional and MHD models to describe the full life span of eruptive structures and how they are injected in the interplanetary space and ii) the development of an operational metric that can discriminate between eruptive and non-eruptive active regions.
