Giuliana Panieri is associate professor in environment and climate at the Department of Geology, UiT The Arctic University of Norway.
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.
Giuliana holds a PhD degree in Paleontology at the University of Modena and Reggio-Emilia, Dip. Earth Science and a Research Post-Doctorate (stipend.), University of Bologna, Dip. Earth Science. Giuliana 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 petroleum companies.
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 has an Adjunct scientist position at WHOI, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (USA).
