Short Curriculum Vitae
Sabina Bigi is an associate Professor at the Department of Earth Sciences of the University of Rome "La Sapienza" and the head of the Tectonics and Fluid Chemistry Lab of the Earth Science Department, where she coordinates a group of researchers having a great experience in geochemistry, structural geology, and social science (http://www.dst.uniroma1.it/en/structures/laboratories/tectonics-and-flui...). She is deeply involved in coordination of research on geological storage of CO2, as a member of the Executive Committee of CO2Geonet (http://www.co2geonet.com/) and of EERA (European Energy Research Alliance) as representative of Sapienza University. She dedicated more than a decade (1990 - 2005) to thrust tectonics studies and the influence of pre-existing structure on the geometries and kinematic of an evolving fold-and-thrust-belt, such as the Apennines, the Alps, the Zagros Mountains (Iran) and the Andes (Argentina). She has expertise in structural geology, geological mapping, seismic interpretation and fracture modelling. Her faults studies were dedicated to the reconstruction of fault architecture and evolution, with particular attention to gas bearing and active faults. Her fractures network studies were focused on fractures characterization in carbonates and on development of new fracture models for fluid flow simulation.
