Chiara Giorio is Associate Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry in the Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge where she leads her own research group. She received her master鈥檚 degree in Chemistry in 2008 from the University of Padua (Italy), where she then completed her PhD in Molecular Sciences in 2012. She was postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge (UK) until the end of 2016, researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, France) until the end of July 2017 and tenure-track Assistant Professor at the University of Padua (Italy) before moving back to Cambridge in March 2020.

Her research interests evolved around the formation pathways, processes, and impacts of atmospheric aerosols; and trace analysis of contaminants in remote, rural, and urban environments. Over the years, she gained experience in field and laboratory experiments using and developing a wide variety of analytical techniques including mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance, microscopy, and direct surface analysis techniques such as liquid extraction surface analysis and X-ray absorption spectroscopy.

Chiara Giorio is part of the Centre for Atmospheric Science, Cambridge Centre for Climate Science, and Centre for Landscape Regeneration. She is also member of the HEICCAM (Health and Equity Impacts of Climate ChAnge Mitigation measures on indoor and outdoor air pollution exposure) innovation research network and recipient of the 2021 RSC Environment, 王中王六合彩特码 and Energy Division Early Career Award for research on the environmental fate of systemic pesticides, influencing global pesticide regulation for sustainable agriculture.

Research in  is focused on exploring the present and the past of the Earth鈥檚 atmosphere and covers areas including atmospheric chemistry, indoor/outdoor air quality, greenhouse gases emissions, paleoclimate, instrument and method development using mass spectrometry and microfluidics, chemometrics, and multivariate data analysis.
