I am an agronomist and laboratory analyst with experience in various soil biological, physical, and chemical analyses.

Since October 2022, I have been a Senior Engineer in the national program for monitoring soil organic carbon in forests and intensive grasslands.

My main tasks are developing and implementing the carbon monitoring sampling protocols and organizing the fieldwork campaigns.

Previous roles and education

From January 2015 to October 2022, I worked in Ireland as Research Technical Officer for Teagasc – the Irish Food and Agriculture Development authority, and for UCD -  University College Dublin, on soil quality, environment, and sustainable resources management. Before that, I worked as a Junior auditor for the EC Food and Veterinary Office, and as an agronomist and researcher on different projects in Italy, Argentina, Tajikistan, and Egypt.

I graduated from the University of Florence with a BSc. Agr. in Agricultural Science for Environmental and Food Security in 2009, and I completed a 2 years MSc. Agr. in Rural Development in 2011.
