About: Alessandro Pisello

AlessandroAfter my bachelor studies in Geology at the University of Perugia, I graduated at the University of Munich (LMU) with a Master of Science (MSc) in the curriculum “Geochemistry and Geomaterials” of the Faculty of geosciences.
After my Master I was enrolled at the University of Perugia, were I gained a PhD in Experimental Petrology with a dissertation titled: “Experimental petrology and volcanology for deciphering extraterrestrial volcanism”, in which I used a suite of spectroscopic techniques (Raman, VNIR, Mid-IR, Brillouin) to characterise lab-made geologic materials.
I am currently a research fellow at the Department of Physics and Geology at the University of Perugia, continuing my research on the relationship between chemistry/crystallinity and spectral response of rocks.
