Rebecca Biagi

I am a geologist with a passionate interest in environmental and fluid geochemistry. After a period of traineeship at the Osservatorio Vesuviano (INGV, sezione di Napoli) in 2019, where I learned the analytical techniques for geochemical volcanic monitoring, I have focused my research interests on air quality, since atmospheric pollution represents a dramatic environmental and health risk worldwide, both in areas affected by natural (such volcanic and hydrothermal) and anthropic (such urban and industrial) emissions. The main goals of my studies include the establishment of a new and innovative monitoring system, in order to improve the detection of the main pollutants (such as GHGs, S-bearing volatile compounds, and PM) and to identify specific geochemical tracers for the recognition of their sources.

B. Sc. in Geology at the University of Florence, 2018. Thesis Title: “Food geochemistry and traceability”. 

M. Sc. in Geological Sciences and Technologies at the University of Florence, 2021. Thesis Title: “Impact on air quality of carbon and sulfur volatile compounds emitted by Pisciarelli, Pozzuoli, Naples”.

Ph.D. Student in Earth Sciences at the University of Florence, 2021-present. Project title: “Geochemical study of air quality in areas of Tuscany affected by the addition of anthropogenic and natural contaminants”
