Sara Biolchi is fellowship research Geomorphology and Engineering Geology at the University of Trieste (Italy), Department of Mathematics and Geosciences, where she works as geologist and geomorphologist in coastal and karst areas.
She graduated in 2005 with a Thesis in geochemistry applied to volcanology and since 2005 she works at the University, dealing with geological, geomorphological and hydrogeological thematics in coastal and karst environments, relative sea level change, geomorphological mapping and coastal hazard.
She collaborated in several international projects, co-funded by the European Union, which dealt with water management and natural heritage of the karst environment.
She obtained her PhD in Coastal Geomorphology at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy), is author or co-author of more than 30 international and national papers and of about 40 contributions in national and international congresses.
