My position at Centre for Deep-Sea Research is linked to the Arctic spreading ridges, with a main focus on spreading processes, hydrothermal activity and formation of mineral resources. My work with the team at Centre for Deep-Sea Research will be concentrated on the simulation of mafic/ultramafic rock-fluid interactions at subcritical and supercritical condition (max T=400C / max P=400 bar), in flow-through. During the experiments, particular attention will be also given to the study of CO2 behaviour at different T-P. This will permit a better comprehension of the mechanisisms that regulate the carbon capture and storage (CCS) in oceanic environment.

The SEAS project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 101034309. SEAS project is aimed at training future research leaders for the conservation and sustainable use of the ocean, seas, and marine resources. We are an interdisciplinary group of postdoctoral fellows at the University of Bergen, Norway who aim to deliver high-quality research with a positive, on the ground impact. Our goals are healthy marine ecosystems and equitable livelihoods (https://seas.w.uib.no/seas/).
