Bernasconi, Stefano, Prof. Dr.
Stefano Bernasconi’s research focuses on the study of biogeochemical processes in terrestrial and marine environments, and on the development of novel techniques and approaches for solving earth science questions.
He has strongly promoted interdisciplinary research at the interface between geology and biology with numerous joint projects and students with environmental scientists, microbiologists, ecologists, plant- and soil scientists.
Since 2009, Stefano Bernasconi has been Adjunct Professor for Biogeochemistry at the Geological Institute, Department of Earth Sciences.
He was born 1961 in Neggio.
He studied Geology and Petrography at ETH Zurich, where he also completed his PhD in Geology in 1991.
After the PhD, he took over the responsibility for the Stable Isotope Laboratory of the Geological Institute which, over the years, he developed and expanded with an organic geochemistry laboratory.
Stefano Bernasconi participated in a cruise with the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) and various international projects. In 2000 he was a guest professor at the University of Strasbourg, France.
|1991||He earned the ETH-Zurich-Silver Medal for his thesis|
Stefano Bernasconi is married and father of two children.
