Bio
More than 10 years of research in the field of Geology, Geophysics, Seismology and Volcano-seismology taught me how, even in Science, the message content is easily conditioned by the form it is communicated with.

After completing a Degree in Geology (Pisa University, Italy) and a PhD in Earth Sciences (Granada University, Spain), I continued my research career with a Post-Doc in USA (New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology), a long stay as Visiting Scientist at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (Italy) and at Institut des Sciences de la Terre (France).
Working with scientists from different countries, collaborating with technicians of various nationalities - in laboratory and fieldwork situations alike, writing research projects for colleagues and collaborators, being a peer-reviewer for science journals, supporting internationals students: I have been exposed to all those issues related to knowledge transfer and languages for years. I became fascinated by the complexity of the translation task and by its importance in research, science communication and capacity building.
Since 2012, I collaborate as an independent contractor with two American companies for the review of scientific manuscripts.

In addition, my passion for outdoor activities strengthened my mastery of English and Spanish with specific regard to open-air activities and sports. The exposure to the professional world of cycling, the personal relationship and the professional contact with experts and providers of outdoor activities (mountain biking, road biking, trekking, mountaineering, climbing, skiing, snowboarding) enhanced my technical knowledge and my language control both in English and Spanish specifically for these sectors. In the last years I have been official translator for important mountain-bike races, interpreter for international road-bike events, besides collaborating with brands and distributors of cycling goods and mountaineering equipment for website translation and marketing.
