Andrea Baglieri graduate in Agriculture Science (1999) and PhD degree in Agricultural Chemistry (2004) at the University of Catania (Italy). He was member of the committee of Department (2011-2014). He is Researcher of Agricultural Chemistry within Di3A (from 2006). He was Lecturer of the following subjects for University of Catania: i) Principles of Chemistry and Eco-toxicology; ii) Soil Formation and Classification; iii) Soil biochemistry and Soil chemistry; iv) Recycling of agricultural biomasses; and v) Elements of Chemistry and Agro-chemistry. He is Lecturer of : i) Soil organic matter management and ii) Chemical pollution. Tutor of PhD theses to International PhD course in Productivity of the Cultivated Plants in Mediterranean Environment and, actually, International PhD course in Agricultural Food And Environmental Science. His research work is proved by more than 25 papers submitted to international journals and he has presented reports and posters at 38 national and international conventions. He was Member of the Organizing Committee for National congress and International workshop. He is Member of the Italian Agricultural Chemistry Society (SICA), the International Humic Substance Society (IHSS) and the Environment Research Group (GRIFA). He has participated in several national research projects. The scientific research has focused on the following subjects: i) Organic matter and humus fractions of soils, sediments, waters and recycled biomasses of different origin; ii) Soil and waters remediation; iii) Tensioactive molecules from natural origin; iv) Pesticides and bio-pesticides interactions with soil and soil components: degradation products and metabolites; v) Studies of the influence of chemical and physical factors on the growth of microalgae and chemical characterization of algal biomass; vi) humic-like substances acting biostimulant from residual biomass.
