Monia Procesi is permanent researcher at INGV (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia). She is geologist with scientific expertise is in water and gas geochemistry applied to georesource characterization. Her first efforts in scientific research were in the area of CO2 geological storage site selection, and she then moved on to geothermal research, focusing on the characterization of potential conventional and unconventional geothermal resources. MP’s research also focuses on geological methane geochemistry, investigating its genesis, formation processes and its role as greenhouse gas. Her researches extends on global scale and she strongly favours a multidisciplinary approach.
She was involved in several international and national geo-energy projects. Currently, she is principal investigator of two national geothermal projects.
She is a member of the Italian Geochemical Society (SOGEI), International Association of GeoChemistry (IAGC) and Italian Geothermal Union (UGI).
She enjoys swimming, skiing, baking cookies and spending good time with her family and friends.
