Dr. Carla Tiraboschi: Mobilizing Carbon Fluids in the Earth’s Crust

I’m Carla, I’m from Milan and I’m an experimental petrologist.

My research involves the study of carbon-bearing aqueous fluids, also known as COH fluids, which are high-pressure fluids composed by carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, like H2O and CO2.

In particular, I’m interested in the interaction between these fluids and the Earth’s mantle, with a special focus on carbon and how this element can be mobilized. Carbon is a fundamental element for life and sustainability on Earth, as it constitutes two of the main greenhouse gases, CO2 and CH4, and its cycling deeply affects our climate and environment.

Fun fact: I have a 7-year old bunny name Bolo.
