Chemical skills made me a Geochemist. Mountain lover and foodie with a passion for gases. My academic path was focused on fluid geochemistry related to environmental geology, especially to air quality. Currently, I’m applying my knowledge to investigate bio-geochemical mechanisms controlling the composition of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in interstitial soil gases at shallow depths (≤60 cm from the surface) in areas affected by gas diffuse seepage (e.g. volcanic and hydrothermal systems and landfills) in order to understand their behaviour and fate.
B.Sc in Geological Sciences at the University of Florence, 2015. Thesis Title: “Laboratory experiments on the production of volatile organic compounds at hydrothermal conditions: A review”.
M.Sc. in Geological Sciences and Technologies at the University of Florence, 2018. Thesis Title: “Degradation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in landfill cover soils. Case Studies: Pinto (Madrid), Zurita (Fuerteventura), La Dehesa (El Hierro)”. 
Junior Researcher at the University of Florence - Dept. Earth Science, 2019-Present. Title: “Geochemical investigation on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in soils from hydrothermal-volcanic and anthropogenic systems”.
Ph.D Student in Earth Sciences at the University of Firenze, 2019-Present. Thesis title: “Biogeochemical processes affecting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in volcanic and hydrothermal systems and municipal solid waste landfills”.
