Summary of CV:

She is a Post Doc fellow at the ENEA Marine Environment Research Centre, where she has been co-tutor of MSC-equivalent students. Her research interests deals with marine bioconstructors, carbon cycling in the Mediterranean and ocean acidification, in particular its effects on biomineralization processes in bryozoans. She collaborates with the Natural History Museum of London, the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, where she developed extensive experience in Microscopy (Optical and Scanning Electron Microscopy), mineralogical and geochemical investigation (XRD and Microprobe) and basic molecular techniques. Snorkelling guide in MPA’s and SCUBA diver with experience in underwater fieldwork in the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.
