Currently (2019-2022) he also serves as the Official Representative of the National Research Council of Italy to IAEG. Since 2016, he is also the Editor-in-Chief of Engineering Geology (Elsevier), and since 2018, a Visiting Professor at the State Key Laboratory for Geohazard Protection (SKLGP), Chengdu University of Technology (CDUT), China (since 2018). For several years he has held the position of Science Officer of the Natural Hazards Group Programme, European Geosciences Union (EGU).

For about 30 years, Dr. Wasowski’s work has covered a broad spectrum of research topics ranging from slope instability and landslide assessment, collateral seismic hazards, geotechnical field investigation and in situ monitoring, to exploitation of air/space-borne remote sensing and geophysical surveying in engineering geology. He has also served as a consultant, focusing on landslides and other geohazards and on the application of satellite multi-temporal interferometry for monitoring terrain deformations and infrastructure stability.
