Young Scholars’ conferences

Authors: Albachiara Boffelli and Alexandra Lagorio Conferences are one of the main events in the life of a researcher (and also one of the most useful and entertaining). They have a twofold objective: to create a moment of sharing one’s research activity with the scientific community of which one is part and to increase one’sContinue reading “Young Scholars’ conferences”

Online teaching from a young scholar perspective

Authors: Albachiara Boffelli and Alexandra Lagorio When we thought about this article, the second semester had just ended, it was summer, and the nightmare of the pandemic in Bergamo seemed to be over.

Nice to meet you! My story and research interests

Author: Alexandra Lagorio When I was nineteen, I decided to do engineering. I decided it because I thought it would take a lot of “technical” skills to try to do something for the planet, to make it different and more sustainable. I never imagined that these somewhat naive and well-meaning goals would still be currentContinue reading “Nice to meet you! My story and research interests”

What am I passionate about and what can you expect me to talk about?

Author: Albachiara Boffelli As one of the first articles for our blog, we thought our readers might be interested in knowing more about our main research topics, or in other words, our research passions. One of the first things I’ve learned during my PhD path is that to do research you need to be passionedContinue reading “What am I passionate about and what can you expect me to talk about?”
