Our community brings together early career researcher in the sciences


bertinetti stefano

PhD STUDENT, University of Genoa

I’m an analytical chemist, and in my PhD, I am studying the transport of atmospheric particulate matter in the polar regions by means elemental and isotopic (Pb, Sr) analysis.

d'amico marianna

PhD STUDENT, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice

PhD student in Polar Sciences. She focuses on emerging pollutants concentrations in polar matrices and on their transport processes in the Arctic and Antarctica.

Rosso Beatrice

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

PhD Student in Environmental Sciences at Ca’ Foscari University Venice. My PhD project focus on the assessment of small microplastics (≤100µm) and plastic additives fluxes in the atmospheric compartment and highways stormwater runoff in urban and polar areas.

Burgay francois

post-doc, Paul Scherrer Institut

I was born in Aosta and the passion for glaciers led me to study them from a chemical point of view. Currently I am involved in organic analysis on ice cores.

dentico carlotta

early stage researcher, National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics

I work on physical and chemical oceanography in relation to the carbonate system. I have investigated ocean dynamics in the North Atlantic and Arctic Ocean and in the Mediterranean Sea.

vecchio maria alessia

phd student, university of genoa

I am a 26 year old girl with a strong passion for science. My field of study is environmental chemistry with particular interest in polar zones.

celli giuditta

PhD STUDENT, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice

Graduated in chemistry, after spending one year in Antarctica for field research, she is studying how the ozone hole influences the mercury and iodine’s geochemical cycle.

Frassati Stefano

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

Master’s degree in environmental chemistry, currently a PhD student in polar sciences. My research project deals with the quantification and photodegradation of micro-nano plastics in alpine and polar snow
