Presently I am a permanent Technologist at ISPRA, Rome.
My expertize is based on integrated characterization of coastal and harbour sediments in Italy and worldwide addressed to their management; bioaccumulation and sediment toxicity assessment; quantification of sediment mixing processes. Moreover, I have acquired experience on the study of environmental pathways (fate and transport) of main contaminants in coastal and urban environments through multimedia mathematical models aimed at assessing the environmental risk. I took part to several environmental characterization project, also in the framework of bilateral projects with developing countries.
Experience in the lab, office and in the field.
