DR. MARIACHIARA CARESTIA, PhD
Born in 1984, I hold a Master Degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology, and achieved the Master of Philosophy in “Protection against CBRN events” from the University of Rome Tor Vergata.
Currently, I am serving as research fellow at the University of Rome Tor Vergata where my research activities are focused on:
the EU founded project “CBRN Integrated Response Italy” where I am one of the contributors. The project, conducted in collaboration with Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna di Pisa and Corpo Nazionale dei Vigili del Fuoco, is aimed at building and testing an integrated CBRN response capability of first responders and law enforcement agencies in Italy.
the “BIO-F” project. A multidisciplinary project for the development of a device for the detection of atmospheric releases of biological warfare agents, exploiting the induced fluorescence features of biological agents. Other information concerning my activities on CBRNe:
In 2013 I attended the “Introduction to the International CBRN Training Curriculum Course” held by the Joint CBRN Defence COE, while in 2014 I participated, as lecturer, at the “Bio Warfare Defence Awareness Course” held by the NATO School of Oberammergau.
I’m lecturer, and part of the Didactic Management Unit, of the international master courses in “Protection against CBRNe events”.
