Marzia Sesini is a Research Associate in the Gas Area at the Florence School of Regulation (FSR) and Course Director of the Loyola Autumn Research School – LARS. Her research interests span from energy security and security of supply to the decarbonisation of the energy system, renewable gas, and technologies for the energy sector, to cross infrastructure integration and distribution network optimisation modeling.

Before joining the FSR, she has been a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Chaire Economie du Climat (Université Paris-Dauphine; Institut Europlace de Finance – Paris), investigating policy-supporting mechanisms to create a market driver for renewable gases (i.e., biogas and biomethane) and to back the decarbonisation of the EU natural gas grid.

An engineer by training, she has accrued extensive experience in the energy industry at the corporate and academic levels. She has worked in Snam’s Corporate Strategy Department as a Gas Advocacy Specialist, dealing with issues relating to the decarbonisation of the gas network at the European and the Italian level, as well as at Bocconi University as an Academic Fellow in the Department of Management and Technology on topics related to energy, the environment, and international corporate strategy. Also, she has been a Doctoral Visiting Fellow at the Oxford Institute of Energy Studies (OIES).

She holds a Ph.D. in Process Systems Engineering | Chemical Engineering Department from Imperial College London, with research investigating the costs and political implications of shared and coordinated natural gas storage services within the European Union in case of supply/demand shocks; as well as an M.S. in Sustainability Management from the Earth Institute of Columbia University in NYC and an M.S. in Engineering from Pavia State University.
