Gianpaolo Balsamo was born in Turin, where he studied until his master's degree in atmospheric physics. His professional approach as a meteorological forecaster at the Service Régional du Piémont in Italy has stimulated his interest in research, starting in 2000 as a young researcher in the Groupe de Modélisation et Assimilation pour la Prévision (GMAP) of the Centre national de Recherche Météorologique (CNRM) of Météo-France, and continuing in 2004 in the Research Team in Recherche en Prévision Numérique (RPN) of the Service Métrologique Canadien de l’Environnement. Since 2006 he has been working as a surface modelling manager at the Centre Européen de Prévision Météorologique à Moyen Terme (CEPMMT) with the position of team leader since 2016.
