Curriculum accademico

 

Giorgia Perpetuini è RTDB in Microbiologia Agraria (SSD 07/I1) presso la Facoltà di Bioscienze e Tecnologie Agro-Alimentari ed Ambientali dell’Università degli Studi di Teramo. Ha conseguito il titolo di Doctor Europaeus e ha svolto attività di ricerca sia all’estero (Université de Bourgogne, Francia) che in Italia (Università di Bologna e Università di Teramo). L’attività di ricerca riguarda temi legati alla microbiologia dei prodotti fermentati come vini, mosti, spumanti, olive da tavola e formaggi a latte crudo. Lo studio della biodiversità microbica negli alimenti è stato affrontato seguendo l’andamento delle popolazioni microbiche dominanti (e non) di diversi prodotti alimentari tradizionali attraverso metodi coltura dipendenti e coltura-indipendenti. La caratterizzazione fenotipica e genetica di lieviti e batteri di interesse si è associato allo studio di diverse attività biotecnologiche utili alla trasformazione e alla sicurezza dei prodotti alimentari. Ampia attenzione è dedicata alla fisiologia, la genetica e le potenzialità biotecnologiche dei microrganismi da impiegare come starter nelle produzioni alimentari e alla valutazione di alcuni caratteri di potenziale interesse biotecnologico, caratteri di interesse salutistico (amine biogene) e proprietà adesive di lieviti e batteri lattici. Le ricerche si sono concretizzate in un brevetto e in 42 pubblicazioni internazionali su riviste recensite dall’ISI. Gli indici bibliometrici di riferimento sono: Pubblicazioni indicizzate = 42; numero di citazioni = 552; h index = 14 (fonte SCOPUS, 06/02/2020). Ha preso parte alla stesura di capitoli in libri ed enciclopedie a diffusione internazionale. È Socio della Società SIMTREA - Società Italiana di Microbiologia Agro-Alimentare e Ambientale e svolge attività di referee per Frontiers in Microbiology, Food Microbiology e LWT - Food Science and Technology.

Curriculum english version

 

Giorgia Perpetuini is RTDB (07/I1) at the Faculty of Bioscience and Technology for Food, Agriculture and Environment, University of Teramo. In 2013 she achieved the title of Doctor Europaeus at the University of Teramo. She carried out her research activity both abroad (Université de Bourgogne, France) and in Italy (University of Bologna and University of Teramo). Her research interests include: microbiology of fermented foods such as wines, musts, sparkling wines, table olives and raw milk cheeses.

She is also interested in food microbial diversity which is investigated through culture-dependent and independent methods and phenotypic and genetic characterization of food borne yeasts and bacteria.

Wide attention is paid to the physiology, genetics and biotechnological potential of microorganisms to be used as starter in food production and to the evaluation of some biotechnological traits which could be exploited at industrial level. Other topics are determination of healthy features (biogenic amines) and adhesive properties of yeasts and bacteria.

She is author and co-author of 42 papers published in international journals reviewed by the ISI, book chapters and a chapter in an encyclopaedia. Reference parameters are: publications indexed = 42; sum of citations = 552; h index = 14 (source SCOPUS, 06/02/2020).
