Vardè Massimiliano

Vardè Massimiliano He is a permanent Researcher at the Institute of Polar Sciences – CNR. Degree (MS) in Chemistry (University of Rome La Sapienza), Master's degree at the Department of Chemical Engineering (University of Rome La Sapienza), followed by three-year doctoral school in Chemical, Environmental and Safety Engineering.
He collaborated with research groups in Italy and abroad, working in an international environment, developing and optimizing active and passive sampling strategies and chemical analytical methods for organic and inorganic micro pollutants (PCDDs, PCDFs, PCBs, PAHs, COVs, and heavy metals) as well as major ions. He applied chromatographic methods, in particular, gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry, to matrices such as air, atmospheric particulate matter, atmospheric deposition and natural waters. His interests have been focused on quantifying levels of contaminants, studying their transport, dynamics, fate and environmental impacts, in urban, rural and remote areas. In recent years, he has been focusing on the determination of mercury at ultra-trace levels by using atomic fluorescence techniques, in air and atmospheric deposition, as well as in potable waters. He has substantially improved some analytical aspects by eliminating the operational criticalities associated with Hg detection. In the framework of the Global Mercury Observation System (GMOS) project, coordinated by Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research (CNR-IIA), he was responsible for analytical mercury measurements in bulk and wet-only deposition samples from different sites. At the CNR-ISP, He is member of the research group carrying out measurements at the High-Altitude Observatory of Col Margherita (MRG) in the Eastern Alps (Belluno Dolomites). This activity is within the scope of the iGOSP (Integrated Global Observing Systems for Persistent Pollutants, strand 3 - Global Change and Environmental Treaties) of the European ERA-PLANET project (2017-2020). He has been involved in several measurement campaigns in Italy and abroad, in an oceanographic campaign in the Mediterranean Sea on board the research vessel R/V Urania as chief-scientist, and in research activities at the CNR Dirigible Italia Arctic Station in Ny Alesund, Svalbard Islands.
