Let’s welcome the first three Associate Editors of AIIG!

Published 19 October, 2023

To facilitate the continued growth and progress of Artificial Intelligence in Geosciences we have recently introduced the position of Associate Editor. We are delighted to announce the appointment of three distinguished researchers to this role. Please join us in welcoming our inaugural Associate Editors: Dr. Maurizio Petrelli, Dr. Calogero Schillaci, and Dr. Nana Yoshimitsu!

Dr. Maurizio Petrelli

Dr. Maurizio Petrelli is an Associate Professor in Petrology at the Department of Physics and Geology, University of Perugia. He obtained his PhD degree with a dissertation titled "Non-Linear Dynamics in Magma Interaction Processes and Their Implications on Magma Hybridization" in February 2006. This outstanding work earned him recognition from the Società Italiana di Mineralogia e Petrologia (SIMP) as the recipient of the Best PhD Thesis in Petrology for the year 2006.

Dr. Petrelli's academic journey further includes obtaining habilitation as an Associate Professor (II Fascia) in 2017 and later as a Full Professor (I Fascia) in 2021, granted by the Ministero dell’Istruzione Ministero dell’Università e della Ricerca (MIUR). His research is primarily focused on characterizing magmatic systems, with a strong emphasis on understanding the dynamics and time-scales of magmatic plumbing systems. Since 2002, he has been actively engaged in laboratory work, particularly dedicated to developing analytical protocols for Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS).

Currently, Dr. Petrelli leads a research group that specializes in the application of machine learning techniques in geology. Additionally, he serves as the scientific manager of the LA-ICP-MS laboratory at the University of Perugia (@UNIPG).

Dr. Calogero Schillaci

Dr. Calogero Schillaci has been a Contract Agent at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission since January 2021. He earned his Ph.D. in Agriculture and Environment from the University of Milan in 2018. Dr. Schillaci's primary focus lies in applied scientific research and providing policy support. He has oublished 50 peer-reviewed research articles centered around agronomy, soil conservation and geosciences.

Dr. Nana Yoshimitsu

Dr. Nana Yoshimitsu holds the position of Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Earth Resources Engineering at Kyoto University. She earned her Doctor of Science degree from Ritsumeikan University in Japan.

Dr. Yoshimitsu's primary research focus centers on seismic source characteristics and the spatiotemporal changes in crustal conditions. Her research methods involve laboratory experiments and the study of induced earthquakes.
