Dr. Carlo Calfapietra is a researcher at the National Research Council (CNR), Institute of Agro-Environmental & Forest Biology (IBAF), and his main interests are the biosphere-atmosphere interactions and the effects of global change and air pollutants on these with a particular focus on the biogenic VOC emission both in urban and rural environments. He has got the degree in Forestry at University of Viterbo (1998) and the PhD in Forest Ecology at University of Padova (2002).
He has been Scientific Secretary of the EUROFACE project, the largest facility in Europe to study the effects of increasing CO2 concentration on forests. He obtained an Outgoing International Marie Curie fellowship (GLOBALVOC) working for one year as honorary fellow at University of Wisconsin-Madison (USA). Dr. Calfapietra has been affiliated or PI in a number of international projects focusing on VOC, global change or air pollutants. He is member of the Steering Committee of the European project CAREX.
Dr. Calfapietra has published about 60 research papers on international journals/books on these topics (H-index: 27). He is Member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Environmental Quality, The Scientific World Journal and of the Open Forest Science Journal and referee of the main international journals in the field of plant ecology including Plant Physiology, New Phytologist, Global Change Biology, Plant Cell & Environment, Plos One.
He has been member of the Evaluation Panel and evaluator of Institutes and/or projects for a number of national organizations In Europe and US.
He has organized a number of international workshops and one international summer school.
He has been also Lecturer in “Urban Forestry” at the International Graduate Degree "Environmental Science for Large Urban Areas" joint between University of Tuscia, Viterbo and the PACE University, New York.
He is Member of the Scientific Committee "Life, Environmental and Geosciences" of Science Europe.
He is Coordinator of the COST Action FP1204, GreenInUrbs "Green Infrastructure approach: linking environmental with social aspects in studying and managing urban forests".
