Di Leo Guglielmo He holds a degree in economics from the University of Messina, where he obtained a Master's degree in Economic-Business Sciences with honours and a 1st Level Master's degree in Expert for Economic-Business Professions. Over the years, he has developed a solid background in administration within the CNR, where she initially held the position of curricular and extracurricular trainee at the former CNR-IAMC and CNR-IRIB sites in Messina. The training he undertook also led him to win a scholarship at the CNR-IRIB Messina site. Thanks to his experience as a scholarship holder, where he was mainly involved in supporting: the reporting of regional and national projects; expenditure management, with the preparation of contracting determinations, acquisition of smart CIGs, expenditure orders with subsequent registration of the contract on the SIGLA system, registration of invoices; personnel management; essential support to the management of the institute's administrative activity. Since November 2023, he has been employed with an open-ended contract of employment with the profile of Technical Collaborator, level VI, and currently works in the administrative office of the CNR-ISP Messina office.

Amaral Wasielesky Ana Bachelor in oceanography at Federal University of Rio Grande. Erasmus Mundus double master degree in Water and Coastal Management (WACOMA) at University of Bologna, University of Cadiz and University of Algarve. Since 2022 is a PhD student in Polar Sciences at Ca’Foscari University of Venice and at the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS). Currently focusing the thesis in the ocean circulation in the Southern Ocean using ARGO float mesurements.

Galli Giacomo Master’s degree in environmental sciences at the University of Pisa. After a two-months period at the National Natural history Museum in Luxembourg, and after a period spent as a research fellow in the University of Pisa, I enrolled in the Polar Science Ph.D. program at the university of Ca’Foscari in Venice. My research revolves around paleoenvironmental reconstruction in Antarctica’s fjord utilizing calcareous microfossils.

Tosco Monica PhD student in polar sciences at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. Bachelor graduated in Physics at University of Torino and master graduated in Physics of Meteoclimatic System at University of Torino. The master thesis was based on an analysis of the Apollo cyclone and its possible transition to MEDIterranean hurricane (MEDICANE) during the 26-29th October 2021 using the WRF meteorological model.

Now she is working on remote sensing analysis of polar regions especially on the comparison of land and satellite measures near the Thule High Arctic Atmospheric Observatory (THAAO) in Greenland.

Gomes Ilha Joao Bachelor in Geology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) and Master in Geochemistry from the same University. Since 2022 is developing his PhD thesis at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice in the program of Polar Sciences studying organic molecules in an Andean ice core to unveil the paleofire history in the Amazon region.

Zucconi Galli Fonseca Laura Laura Zucconi Galli Fonseca (h-index 33) is Associate Professor in Botany from 2005. She has been involved in Antarctic Research projects from 1992 both as PI or responsible of RU, as well as in projects in other extreme environments, as the Arctic (INTERACT-Horizon 2020) and Alps (PRIN 2015, PRIN 2019, PRIN 2022). She joined the 2014 Arctic expedition (Ny-Ålesund) and six Italian Antarctic Expeditions (XIX, XXVI, XXXI, XXXIII, XXXV, XXXVII), appointed by the Italian National Research Council (CNR) as Scientific Coordinator of the research activities carried out at the Italian Base during the XXVI, XXXV, and XXXVII Expeditions. Member of the Editorial Board of Section ‘Extreme Microbiology’ in Frontiers in Microbiology. Guest Associate Editor of two topics for Frontiers in Microbiology and two topics for Biology (MDPI).
Her scientific activity focuses on microbial ecology, in particular on Antarctic soil and cryptoendolithic communities distribution, biodiversity and adaptation to different stresses. In the last years, her research is being extended in a deeper analysis of soil microbial communities through molecular approaches, to describe the effects of environmental conditions on their composition, functionality and adaptability. Her research activities range among different fields: systematic and taxonomy of filamentous fungi, ultrastructural morphology, molecular biology, astrobiology, adaptive responses to stress conditions – including real and simulated space conditions – of both single species and whole fungal communities.

Cavaliere Alice She obtained a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Computer Engineering at the University of Florence and a Ph.D. in Information Engineering (nonlinear dynamics and complex systems) at the same University. She later worked as a post-doc fellow at the CNR Bioeconomy Institute. She currently holds the role of technologist at the Institute of Polar Sciences of the CNR, based in Bologna, collaborating on the data management and administration of the IT infrastructures of the NADC (National Antarctic Data Center) and IADC (Italian Arctic Data Center) projects. Thanks to experience in the field of data management and their analysis also through machine learning techniques, it helps researchers publish and share the data collected from research, making them compatible with modern standards and adhering to the principles of data FAIRness and Open Science.

Viglezio Tessa Bianca Sonya Bachelor in Biology at the Neuchâtel University, Switzerland, and Master of Science in Ecology and Conservation at the University of Groningen, Netherlands. Currently working for the CNR – Institute of Polar Sciences (CNR – ISP) in Venezia Mestre. She is Station Leader of the Italian Arctic station Dirigibile Italia in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. As Station Leader, she works daily on the field and in the lab, besides taking care of some parts of the station’s administration.

Paladini de Mendoza Francesco Dr. Francesco Paladini de Mendoza's research focuses mainly on the dynamic processes at the water-sediment interface triggered by littoral and deep bottom currents. Over time, he has gained much experience in field measurements and management of instruments and platforms for monitoring the chemical and physical properties of the marine environment. He actively participates in the management of some observational network infrastructures (EMSO-ERIC and SiOS). He has published 21 scientific papers emphasizing measurement and multidisciplinary approach in the study of the marine environment. He has participated in oceanographic and geological-marine expeditions in the Mediterranean Sea and Oceans, accumulating more than 400 operational days at sea.

Colombo Roberto Roberto Colombo is professor of Remote Sensing at the Department of Environmental Sciences, University of Milano Bicocca. The main research interest is to develop remote sensing tools for quantitative estimation of land surface properties. He works with a wide range of Earth Observation data at different scales and geophysical methods, assimilating multi-source, multi-spectral and multi-temporal remote sensing data, from field spectroscopy to satellite level for modelling terrestrial and environmental dynamics, with focus on vegetation fluorescence and snow properties. Current activities include space mission concepts and definition, airborne campaigns and field cal/val strategies, engineering and design of proximal remote sensing instruments, algorithm development, environmental modelling and new applications.
