Mariapaola Ambrosone

  • Research Assistant, Greenfield Lab, Environmental Sciences Initiative

Mariapaola Ambrosone earned her Master’s degree in Environmental Sciences and Certificate of Geomatics at the University of Geneva. She joined Dr. Dianne Greenfield’s lab as a Research Assistant, where she manages lab operations, conducts sample analyses and, helps to  investigate the causes of harmful algal blooms along with other projects involving phytoplankton biogeochemistry. When not in the lab, Mariapaola can be found hiking in Upstate New York or tending her vegetable garden.
