Marie Skłodowska-Curie researcher
Department of Geosciences, University of Padova, Italy
I have a "European PhD" in Earth Sciences (Univ. Padova, Italy) and an MSc/BSc in Conservation of Cultural Heritage (Univ. Bari, Italy). I am research fellow at Univ. Padova, with previous academic experiences in Japan (Saitama Univ.), Hungary (Budapest Univ. Technology & Economics), Germany (Univ. Göttingen), and Canada (Memorial Univ. Newfoundland). My research interest is in heritage science, in particular stone weathering in monuments, historical buildings, underwater sites, and caves; the interaction of cultural heritage with the environment, e.g., the impact of climate change, microclimate, air pollution, and water interaction; and archaeometry of archaeological artifacts and structures. Aside from my academic life, I am a licensed tour guide, a certified scuba diver (Advanced Open Water, −40m), and holder of 2nd dan in kendō. My other passions and interests involve solo-traveling, hiking, rock music, history, and arts.
