Biography

Giorgia Stasi is a Geologist specialized in Ore Geology and Geochemistry.

She obtained her MSc in Geology and Technical Geology from the University of Padova, Italy, in 2016, and she is currently enrolled in a PhD program in Applied Geophysics at the University of Liège, Belgium.

For four years she has been working as Geologist at the Geological Survey of Belgium (Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences) with a focus on critical raw materials and technology development. She worked for several H2020 projects related to raw materials, like UNEXMIN (Inventory of Flooded mines in Europe), FRAME, ROBOMINERS and Mintell4EU.

Currently her research focuses on the development of geophysical techniques for deep mining and robotic autonomous exploration.

She is also involved in geoscience communication and dissemination activities to the public, such as Soapbox Science, Skype a Scientist, and as collaborator in the ECS group of the ERE division (EGU).
