Passion for mountains and climate physics/chemistry is what brings me to UIBK. I have always been driven by understanding natural phenomena around us. It is the interdisciplinary field of atmospheric physics, chemistry and biology that fascinates me. I studied chemistry and pharmaceutical technologies in Italy, then I went to the Netherlands to study physics and to do a master in climate physics. Last year I worked in the field of public air quality. I am eager to start this new adventure at UIBK to do research in the field of Mountain forests and learn more about the forest carbon cycle.
I am half Dutch, half Italian, love baking, hiking with my dog, cycling and (trail)running. And I am always up for a challenge, whether it's learning new hobbies, experimenting with new recipes, studying the effects of drought on the GPP or running up a mountain, 'if it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you'.
