She took part in the 26th Italian Antarctic Expedition at the Antarctic Base Mario Zucchelli from 12 November to 7 December 2010, as well as in the expedition “Campagna Artico” (March-September 2010) at the CNR Arctic Base “Dirigibile Italia” (Ny Alesund, Svalbard) from 14 April to 10 May 2010.
In the framework of the EARLYhumanIMPACT project, Roberta is responsible for the development of methodologies for the determination of biomass burning markers in ice and lake sediments.
- Development and validation of analytical methodologies regarding both preparation (extraction and clean-up) and equipment
- HRGC-LRMS and HRGC-HRMS, HPLC-MS/MS and LC-HRMS techniques
- Determination of organic micro-pollutants, tracers and biomarkers, with particular regard to compounds derived from biomass combustion in matrices such as sediments, aerosols, deposits, micro-layers, water, snow, ice, plants, and biota.
