Giuliana Panieri is a Professor in Geology at the Department of Geosciences at UiT, and a member of the WP5 Methane seep history in CAGE.
Giuliana Panieri is member of the steering board for CHESS – Research school on Changing Climates in the Coupled Earth System. She has been President (elect) of the Biogeosciences Division and now General Secretary 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 extreme environments, 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.
