1998: Master Degree in Earth Sciences at the University of Ferrara (Italy) with a thesis on: “Morphostructural analysis of linear and circular forms in the North-earstern part of the Alpine region via Landsat TM images interpretation”. Final mark: 110/110 cum laude.

2003: Ph.D. in Applied Geology at the University of Ferrara (Italy) with a thesis on: “Characterization and modelling of a sandy aquifer contaminated by hydrocarbons to evaluate natural attenuation potential”. Final mark: Optimum.

My main research activities concern: (i) the characterization and monitoring of contaminated sites via the application of different assessment methods and the implementation of groundwater flow and solute transport modeling, to evaluate contaminant sources and fate, to verify the efficiency of the reclamation strategies and to evaluate different scenarios on the modelled filed site; (ii) the study of salinization processes due to the interaction between marine, surface and ground waters, to test strategies for the mitigation of environmental issues induced by water resources salinization (such as artificial recharge and sustainable withdrawals); (iii) the correct calculation of water and nitrogen balance at basin scale to face environmental issues induced by intensive agriculture in the coastal plains.
