Curriculum vitae

AM graduated in Chemistry (110/110) in 1994 and got the PhD in Chemical Sciences in 1998 in Bologna. Then she had a grant at the Molecular Spectroscopy Institute of CNR. From 1999 to 2018 she is Researcher and since 2018 she is Associate Professor in Physical Chemistry at the University of Bologna. Her research activity mainly focuses on: rotational spectroscopy signature of molecules for astronomical and atmospheric detection; simulation and assignment of molecular spectra; determination of the structural and dynamical parameters governing the molecular activity. Since 1995 she published 97 JCR articles (

AM was visiting scientist at the Institut de Planétologie et d'Astrophysique de Grenoble (F), at the University of Valladolid (E) and at the Elettra synchrotron of Trieste (I). She attended several national and international meetings with contributed talks. AM was member of the organizing committees of the national workshop "Theory, experiments and modeling of chemical processes, dynamics and molecular interactions" (Bologna, 2012), the 24th International Conference on "High Resolution Molecular Spectroscopy" (Bologna, 2014), the International workshop “Mirror Images in Molecules: High Resolution Spectroscopy Features” (Bologna, 2016). She carries out peer review activities for international journals.

AM taught in the secondary school, in the bachelor degree “Chemistry and Molecular Materials”, in the master degrees “Advanced Chemistry, Chemistry”, “Photochemistry and Molecular Materials”, “Analysis and Management of the Environment”, in the Erasmus Mundus master degree “Chemical Innovation and Regulation”, at the PhD School of “Chemical Sciences” of the University of Bologna. She taught Spectroscopy, Laser spectroscopy, Material spectroscopy, Informatics, Chemionformatics, Structure toxicity relationship, Theoretical chemistry, Physical chemistry of the atmosphere, Biomedical chemistry, Multivariate statistical analysis. She has been member of exam boards in "Chemistry" BSc, "Photochemistry and Molecular Materials" MSc and "Erasmus Mundus Master Course in Chemical Innovation and Regulation - ChIR". She was the foreign member of a PhD evaluation committee. She was the scientific supervisor of 4 bachelor, 4 master and 1 PhD thesis.

AM has been the coordinator of four RFO scientific local projects at the University of Bologna, of a project supported by the Transnational Access Program Europlanet 2020 Research Infrastructure and two projects at the Elettra synchrotron of Trieste. In 2017 she was admitted to the national annual funding of basic research activities. She was also financially supported in eight PRIN scientific national projects, and fifteen RFO scientific local projects. AM is a member of the Italian Society of Chemistry (SCI) and of the Scientific committee of the Interdepartmental Chemistry Library.
