2015: Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences at the University of Bologna (Italy) with a thesis on: “Hydrogeochemical monitoring and modelling of saltwater intrusion in lowlands (Ferrara, IT)”.

2011: Ph.D. in Earth Sciences at the University SAPIENZA of Rome (Italy) with a thesis on: “Evaluation of low-cost techniques for aquifers characterization, through numerical modeling of laboratory and in situ experiments”.

2002: Master Degree in Earth Sciences at the University of Ferrara (Italy) with a thesis on: “Implementation and validation of a numerical model for the evaluation of the hydrogeological interference of the Firenzuola tunnel on Veccione Basin”.

My main research activities focuses on: (i) the characterization and monitoring of contaminated sites via different assessment methods (hydrogeological, geophysical and hydrochemical) and groundwater flow and solute transport modeling; (ii) water resources management and protection in the coastal plains via the understanding of salinization processes and the correct calculation of water and nitrogen balance to face environmental issues induced by intensive anthropogenic activities.
