Giulia Castellani is an early career scientist at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) in Germany, whose expertise covers the fields of sea ice physics and biology. She is the co-lead investigator in the Eco-Light project.

Her research focuses on the links between sea ice physical properties, sea ice ecology and biogeochemistry, and the sympagic ecosystem. Her work is inserted in a highly interdisciplinary environment combining physics, biology, and also modelling and field work.

She has experience in sea ice physical modelling and sea ice algae and ecosystem modelling. Besides modelling, her experiences extend to the organization, preparation and participation in field campaigns in the Antarctic region and in the Arctic Ocean.

Eco-Light is co-funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and by NERC.
