Curriculum

Main research interests: i) characterization of organic matter in soils and sediments, ii) evolution of organic matter in soils and sediments in relation to climate changes (sinks or sources of C?), iii) biogeochemistry of trace elements, radionuclides and organic pollutants: utilization of ombrotrophic bogs as archives of their atmospheric depositions during centuries (natural vs. anthropogenic sources), and iv) sustainable utilization of waste biomass in agriculture.
He is member of the following scientific societies: European Geosciences Union (EGU), International Humic Substances Society (IHSS), International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS), Italian Society of Soil Science (SISS), and Italian Society of Agricultural Chemistry (SICA).
He is currently President of the Soil System Sciences division of the EGU, Vice Chair of the Commission 4.1 "Soils and the Environments" of the IUSS, Member of the Advisory Board of the SICA and SISS, and Associate Officer of the Board of the IHSS.
He is currently member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Soils and Sediments (Springer; ISI-JCR), Soil (Copernicus Publications), Soil Systems (MDPI; ISI-JCR), Frontiers in Earth Science (Frontiers; ISI-JCR), Frontiers in Environmental Science (Frontiers), Cogent Food & Agriculture (Taylor & Francis) and Journal of Chemistry (Hindawi; ISI-JCR).

Research interests
Topic Description Research area
Chimica del suolo / Biogeochimica Attività di ricerca svolta: - caratterizzazione della sostanza organica, fresca ed umificata, in suoli e sedimenti; - influenza dei cambiamenti climatici sull’evoluzione della sostanza organica in suoli e sedimenti (suoli come sink e/o source di C); - biogeochimica di elementi traccia, radionuclidi ed inquinanti organici in suoli e sedimenti: ricostruzione dei rispettivi trend deposizionali nel corso dei secoli ed individuazione di input naturali vs. antropogenici; - utilizzo sostenibile di biomasse di scarto in agricoltura. Biogeochemistry, biogeochemical cycles, environmental chemistry
