Curriculum vitae

Born in 1973 in Cremona, graduated in Parma in 1997 with the thesis “Calcareous nannofossil biostratigraphy of the Ostia and Scabiazza Sandstones (Val Trebbia, Val Ceno, Val Taro, Northern Apennines, Italy): a key to a Cretaceous tectono-stratigraphic interpretation”.

PhD in micropaleontology in 2003 at the University of Parma with a thesis on the use of calcareous nannofossils of Southern Ocean (Antarctica) for palaeoecological and palaeoceanographic evaluations.

Between 2004 and 2013 was a research fellow at the University of Parma and during 2006 and 2007 was Member of the International program of Antarctic research (IT, GER, NZ, UK e USA) “ANDRILL” MIS and “ANDRILL” SMS (ANtarctic DRILLing; http://www.andrill.org/), project approved by ICSU/WMO Joint Committee for the International Polar Year (IPY)

Author of more than 35 scientific papers on international and national journals in 2014 was a researcher (RTD) of the Physic and Earth Science Department of University of Parma.
