My research is focused on human impact and climate change on Lake Garda, the largest Italian lake, during the last few centuries. I’ll analyze sub-fossil diatoms and Cladocera remains, and a set of sedimentary geochemicalproxies. The reconstruction of secular lake history is important for future lake management and to evaluate lake vulnerability against expected environmental changes.
I am currently working in the EuLakes Project as a PhD student, in cooperation with the Edmund Mach Foundation (San Michele all’Adige – Trento, Italy) and part in cooperation with University of Umeå (Sweden).
The EuLakes project is part of the Central Europe Program and the Edmund Mach Foundation is one of the Project Partner. The project aims to support the sustainable management of Central European lakes by fostering a combination of vulnerability and risk assessment, monitoring and participative planning to face climate change and other environmental stressors.
