Chiara Coletti completed her PhD as a co-tutelle student at Padua (Italy) and Granada (Spain) Universities in 2016. She was involved in three post-doctoral fellowships, two of which supported by the H2020 EU-Funds (Cheap-GSHPS; Hyperion). Her MSCA Global Fellowship, M3DEA, proposes a new 3D Diagnostic Imaging Model (DIM) approach for the quantification of stone damage in cultural heritage, in terms also of readability reduction of decorative elements and, subsequently, of the capacity of the monument (the Trajan’s Column) to transmit its cultural message in its future appearance. The proposal based on the mixing of state-of-the-art technologies (3D imaging) with traditional methodologies (laboratory tests) and on a multi-scale approach in order to cover the broadest cultural heritage patrimony. The research will be developed in two phases: an outgoing phase (24-months) at the Department of Geomatics Engineering of the University of Calgary (Canada) and a return phase (12-months) at the Department of Geosciences of the University of Padua (Italy, Host Institution), under the supervision of Prof. Claudio Mazzoli.
