Our community brings together early career researcher in the sciences

ALL MEMBERS

Alfei PIER PAOLO

PHD Student, Catholic University of Milan

His PhD project focuses on the role played by Italy in Arctic exploration, with particular regard to the relation between polar expeditions and diplomacy. 

Artoni CLAUDIO

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

Dealing with the optical properties of mineral dust in the snow and ice cores in Antarctica, Alps and Svalbard. Analyzing the properties and the stability of the snowpack.

Aulicino giuseppe

research assistant, parthenope university of Naples

PhD in Polar Science (2011). Research interests in oceanography (Seaice; Ocean-ice-atmosphere exchanges; Polynyas; Eddies; AUVs and UAVs; Multiplatform monitoring) and remote sensing (SAR, PMW, TIR, altimetry). Former APECS-Italy coordinator.

battaglia francesca

PhD STUDENT, Cà Foscari University of Venice

PhD Student in Science and Management of Climate Change. Expertise: geophysics, polar science. Research topic: seismic facies analysis and identification of glacial processes at high latitude continental margins: Ross Sea, Antarctica.

Bianco Elena

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

MSc degree in Climate Change at the University of East Anglia and a BSc at the University of York. Her PhD research is in collaboration with the Ocean Modeling and Data Assimilation (ODA) division at CMCC in Bologna

Calì Quaglia Filippo

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

Graduated in Physics at University of Turin. He is interested in the radiative effects of the aerosols in the Arctic. He participated in more than 16 months of measurements in Antarctica and in the Arctic (Thule and Svalbard Islands).

Cucini Claudio

PHD STUDENT, university of siena

I am Molecular Biologist and I am studying Antarctic Collembola biodiversity through bioinformatic methods

De Rovere FRANCESCO

PHD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

He deals with modifications in Arctic and Atlantic water masses circulation in Kongsfjorden (Svalbard) in response to global environmental changes.

fisauli giulia

MsC Student, University of Perugia

I’m graduated in geology, currently, I’m a master student in “Geosciences for environmental sustainability” at University of Perugia, I have a strong interest in climate changes in the polar regions

Grillo Marco

phd student, university of Siena

Marco Grillo research activity focuses on Antarctic Planktology. Currently he is doing his PhD at University of Siena focusing on Antarctic Pteropods.

Segato Delia

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

I’m a PhD student at Ca’Foscari University of Venice. My main topic of research is about past sea ice reconstruction through halogen measurements in polar ice cores.

TRAVERSA GIACOMO

PhD STUDENT, University of Siena

He studies the ablation areas in Antarctica, relevant for surface mass balance (i.e. glazed snow and blue ice), by mapping them and analyzing their trends in time by means of remote-sensing.

GUZZI ALICE

PhD student, University of Siena

Currently PhD Student at the University of Siena. I work on Antarctic Echinoderms using morphological and molecular approach with main focus on convergent evolution and cryptic diversity in the ophiuroids.

Spagnesi Azzurra

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

Graduated in paleoclimatology, with previous experience in dendrochronology and Surface Exposure Dating (SED), I currently work on paleoclimatic reconstructions through the continuous analysis of alpine ice cores.

leo patrick

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

Cellular and Molecular Biologist. PhD project focus on the detection of biosignatures from fossilized and living cryptoendolithic communities from McMurdo Dry Valleys (Antarctica) to be applied in the field of astrobiology.

Suaria Giuseppe

Researcher, CNR-ISMAR

Researcher at ISMAR Lerici, he studies the dynamics of accumulation, distribution and transport of plastics in polar, oceanic and Mediterranean environments. In 2017 he participated in the ACE expedition sampling microplastics during the entire circumnavigation of the Antarctic continent.
