Carlotta’s keen interest toward science, technology and sustainability motivated her to obtain her master’s degree in Biotechnology for the Bioeconomy at the University of Milan, Italy. Having a strong international perspective, she took part to the Erasmus+ programme conducting her master’s thesis at Tampere University, Finland, where she worked as researcher for one year after graduation. Throughout her studies and her time working abroad she engaged in various projects, always in collaboration with international partners, focused on sustainable biomass and waste valorisation for the production of high value compounds and materials.
She is a committed and motivated young researcher whose mission is creating a positive impact on the natural and social environment with science and technology. Her journey in academia enhanced her passion towards research and circular bioeconomy driving her to pursue a PhD focused on the sustainable recovery of valuable compounds from renewable biomass. Thriving in an international environment, she decided to move from Italy to Finland and now to Belgium to continue her journey while experiencing and embracing different countries and cultures.
