Title: Are cave deposits recording culturally induced environmental changes related to the end of Nuragic Era (~580 BC)? A study case from Sardinia (Italy)
Prof. Columbu is an expert in paleoclimate and landscape evolution reconstructions using carbonate deposits (mostly cave deposits) through geochemical proxies as: U-Th geochronology, δ18O-δ13C , and trace elements. After a Bachelor in Earth sciences and a Master in Geology at the University of Bologna, he completed his PhD thesis in 2017 at the University of Melbourne in Australia, on carbonate speleothems from the Mediterranean. He then moved back as a postdoc to the University of Bologna, before becoming a research fellow at the University of Parma. Recently, he was appointed as Assistant Professor at the University of Pisa.
