Curriculum vitae

Research fellow from February 2023 at the Department of Agro-Environmental and Food Sciences, in the Agricultural Chemistry Area.

Research grant in collaboration with the National Composting Consortium (CIC), as part of the project: "Study of the fertilizing efficiency and main soil effects following the use of composted amendments of different origins in field trials and in a controlled environment".

PhD student from November 2019 at the Agro-Food Sciences and Technologies Department, in the Agricultural Chemistry Area, under supervision of Prof. Ilaria Braschi. His research interests are aimed at environmental remediation strategies. Particularly, it is focused on new methodologies experimentation for soils, sediment and water decontamination from pollutant such as heavy metals and hydrocarbons. His research field also extends to food quality, especially implementing effective zero-residue production methodologies.


In 2017 he attended the II Level Master, Characterization and Remediation of Contaminated Sites, at the Ca 'Foscari University of Venice.

Graduated in 2015 at the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Bologna - LM in Management and Planning of Agro-Territorial Forestry and Landscape Ecosystems.
