Maffezzoli Niccolò He received his master degree in nuclear and particle physics from Milano-Bicocca University in 2014. His background ranges from applied particle physics to environmental radioactivity and high-energy physics. His work at the nuclear fission reactor in Pavia (Italy) introduced him to the ice core science field. He did his PhD (2014-2017) at the Niels Bohr Institute (Copenhagen, Denmark), working on ice core continuous flow analysis systems and past sea ice reconstructions. He continued his research on climate reconstructions at the Niels Bohr Institute, at the Italian National Research Council and at the University of Venice in 2018 and 2019. Between 2020 and 2022 he was Marie Curie fellow at the University of Venice with a project on computer vision and Artificial Intelligence techniques applied to ice core analyses. Since September 2022 he works on glacier modeling via deep neural networks in collaboration with the University of California, Irvine. He is particularly interested in exploring AI and Machine Learning approaches to Earth System Science problems.

Montaguti Simonetta Degree in Civil Engineering and PhD in Geodetic and Topographic Sciences from the University of Bologna.
She participated in four research campaigns in Antarctica, two of which in summer at the Italian Mario Zucchelli base as part of the Italian Geodetic Observatory project and two in winter at the Concordia international base, managing the experimental activities of the CNR - Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (CNR-ISAC).
She is currently a research fellow at the CNR - Institute of Polar Sciences (CNR-ISP) of Venezia Mestre where she deals with the management and logistical support of the Dirigibile Italia Arctic Station in Ny-Ålesund (Svalbard Islands) and takes care of routine atmospheric measurements in the Arctic.

Del Gobbo Costanza After receiving her bachelor's degree in Geology at the University of Trieste and her master's degree in Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Innsbruck, she completed a PhD in Earth Science and Fluid Mechanics at the University of Trieste and the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), where she carried out her research activity about paleoclimatic modeling until December 2021.
She is currently a research fellow for the "CryoKarst FVG - Cryosphere in the Karstic environments of Friuli-Venezia Giulia" project at the Institute of Polar Sciences of the CNR (CNR-ISP), at the Science-Park Area - Basovizza, Trieste.
Her project focuses on monitoring the external and hypogeal cryosphere in karst and alpine environments which are investigated under a climatic, paleoclimatic and geomorphological perspective by the mean of glaciological surveys and geophysical, 3D and modeling approaches. As part of her research activity, she is also interested in the climate-cryosphere interactions in the Alpine region from the LGM to the present days. She applies a modeling approach based on the reconstruction of the environmental ELA and the main atmospheric circulation patterns. She participated in a scientific expedition in the Himalayas (Nepal) and several glaciological campaigns in the central and eastern Alps.

Traversa Giacomo Master’s degree in Natural Sciences (University of Milano), PhD Candidate in Environmental, Geological and Polar Sciences and Technologies (University of Siena) co-financed by the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA). Current position: research fellow at the Institute of Polar Sciences of the CNR (CNR-ISP) in Milano.
Currently the research concerns the use of satellite images for the estimation of optical and thermal properties of glaciers at the margins of the Antarctic Ice Sheet as a part of the PNRA18 Project Bio-Geo Albedo feedback at Antarctic Ice-Sheet margins. Previously the research concerned the analysis by remote sensing of ablation areas in Antarctica, i.e., wind crust and blue ice, with particular attention to the snow megadune fields on the Antarctic plateau. He attended two PhD courses at The University Centre in Svalbard (NO), with which took part in a campaign in Nordaustlandet Island. As a visiting PhD student, he spent a period at the Finnish Meteorological Institute of Helsinki (FIN) and taught as a tutor for master’s and bachelor laboratories of Cartography and Geographic Information System at the University of Milan. Author of seven scientific publications in international journals.

Dell Acqua Ombretta After receiving her Ph.D. in Marine Science (2018) at the University of Genoa, she worked as research fellow at the same university, investigating anthropic impact and climate change effect on littoral Antarctic benthos, for which she joined three Antarctic expeditions.
She is currently a research fellow at the Institute of Polar Sciences (CNR-ISP), where she is taking care of logistic support for the Italian Arctic Station Dirigibile Italia, including period as Station Leader.

Lagorio Serena Marine biologist and oceanographer, Serena got three degrees from different universities: the undergraduate in Biological Sciences at the University of Genova, the master in marine biology at the University Politecnica delle Marche in Ancona, another master in 'Applied Physical Oceanography' at the University of Malta. She studied in detail the algae reproduction as well as the anchovies reproduction, while her specialisation as a marine biologist was about the study of the Sperm whales' acoustic. She wanted to protect the oceans and who lives in them, therefore in Malta she specialised into the study of the plastic pollution, with the use of a drone, deriving from an oceanic input as well as from humans, as a definition of a non education about the environment. Furthermore, her desire to know more in detail about other cetaceans species brought her for different summer seasons to Husavik, Iceland, working as a whale watching guide. From the humpback whales and the blue whales to the curiosity of knowing more about the ice, while looking at the glaciers in Iceland. Since then, she became a PhD student at the University of Ca' Foscari of Venice, in collaboration with the University of Milan-Bicocca, where she is studying the RICE ice core, in particular the fossils that she is finding into the core and the reason why they are there.

Battaglia Francesca Master's degree in Exploration Geology (University of Rome "La Sapienza"), PhD in Science and Management of Climate Change (Cà Foscari University of Venice, OGS Trieste and University of Otago, New Zealand) funded by the Italian National Research Program in Antarctica (PNRA). Current position: research fellow at the Institute of Polar Sciences of the CNR (CNR-ISP) in Bologna. Previously assistant researcher at the geochemistry laboratory of the University of Otago in New Zealand.
Currently the research concerns the study and characterization of the terrestrial organic carbon along the Adriatic margin through stable carbon isotopes and organic markers as part of the PRIN-PASS 2017 Project.

Frangipani Claudia Bachelor's and Master's degree in Chemistry at Università degli studi di Perugia, with both thesis projects focused on the analysis of data from an environmental monitoring station. The study on atmospheric Black Carbon continued at the same university for a few months after graduation.
From November 2021 she is a PhD student at Università G. D'Annunzio di Chieti-Pescara, with a project revolving around the study of radiation budget and cloud cover in Antarctica and carried out at the CNR-ISP in Bologna.
