Antonella Buccianti

  • Università degli Studi di Firenze, Italy

I have achieved the degree in Geological Sciences with 110/110 cum laude in 1988, at the University of Florence and PhD in Geochemistry in 1994, discussing the thesis with title: “The behaviour of volatile elements (F, Cl, S and C) in magmatic and volcanic processes”. I am currently Professor of Environmental Geochemistry and Computational Geochemistry at the University of Florence (Italy), Department of Earth Sciences:

My scientific interest are:

  • Compositional Data Analysis (CoDA) in Geochemistry: theory and applications
  • Computational Geochemistry
  • Data Management and Environmental Modeling
  • Applied Statistics and Geostatistics

My main goals are:

  • to disseminate the philosophy of CoDA in the Earth sciences community;
  • to contribute in theoretical developments and practical applications for the analysis of geochemical systems;
  • to develop database for regional data collection including the challenges of CoDA;
