Giuliana Panieri is a professor in environment and climate at the Department of Geology at UiT, and the leader of the PhD training school AMGG
Giuliana Panieri is the leader of the PhD trainee school in arctic marine geology and geophysics (AMGG) in Tromsø and also member of the steering board for CHESS – Research school on Changing Climates in the Coupled Earth System. She is currently President (elect) of the Biogeosciences Division at the European Geosciences Union EGU and has an Adjunct scientist position at WHOI, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (USA).
She is mainly interested in using micropaleontology and geochemistry to study present and past methane emissions and methane hydrate dissociations. She seeks to answer questions regarding the timing, periodicity, and intensity of methane emissions with the final goal of assessing their evolution through time and understanding possible connections to climate change in the Arctic.
Giuliana holds a PhD degree in Paleontology from the University of Modena and Reggio-Emilia and a Research Post-Doctorate (stipend) from University of Bologna. She has professional experience from the University of Barcelona (Spain), the University of Oldenburg (Germany), LSU Louisiana State University (USA), ISMAR CNR (Italy), and as an independent micropaleontologist for several oil companies.
