Antonio Marcomini is full professor of Environmental Chemistry at the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice since 2000. Graduated from the University of Padua, he was post-doctoral fellow at the University of Toronto, Lash Miller Chemical Institute, Canada (1982-83), and then research associate at the Polytechnic of Zurich, ETH-EAWAG, Switzerland (1985-86). Coordinator/partner of several international and national research projects (see CV), he is author/coauthor of over 300 papers published in international peer reviewed journals, editor and coauthor of two books. According to SCOPUS and Google Scholar, his H-index over the 1986-2020 period are 58 and 67, respectively. Member of national (e.g. Ministry of the Environment, Venice Water Authority) and international (e.g. European Science Foundation, European Environmental Agency) advisory/expert committees on chemical environmental quality, environmental risk assessment, definition and implementation of environmental quality standards, master plan of contaminated megasites, etc., he is currently president of the Division of Environmental and Cultural Heritage Chemistry of SCI (Italian Society of Chemistry), national delegate in the Division of Chemistry and the Environment (DCE) of EuchemS (European Chemical Societies), dean of CoRiLa (Coordination of Research on the Lagoon of Venice), director of the masters in Environmental rehabilitation and recovery of contaminated sites (RISSICO) and Science and techniques for the prevention and environmental safety (STEPS-HSE) and coordinator of the PhD programme in Science and management of Climate Changes. Over the last six years, he has been director of the Department of Environmental Science, Informatics and Statistics, and member of the academic Senatus.
