Dr. Valeria Ancona graduated from the University of Bari with a degree in Agricultural Science and Technology in 2004. She earned her Ph.D. in Agricultural Chemistry from the same university in 2008. She was able to solidify her knowledge and abilities in soil and water remediation technologies because to the abundance of experience she gained throughout her Ph.D. phase. She has been working at the Waters Research Institute (IRSA-CNR) in Bari since 2008, focusing on plant-assisted bioremediation as an ecological approach to multi-contaminated site recovery. She combined microbial ecology techniques for evaluating the structure and composition of soil microbial communities with analytical techniques for the assessment of contaminants (organic and inorganic) in soil and biomass to study soil decontamination processes as a result of the synergistic action between plant species and soil microorganisms. More than 80 publications have been published in national and international scientific journals (ISI), conference proceedings, and technical reports because of her research.

Dr. Dragana Randjelovic works as a Senior Research Associate at Institute for Technology of Nuclear and Other Mineral Raw Materials in Belgrade, Serbia. She holds B.S. and M.S. from the Faculty of Forestry in Landscape Architecture, and a Ph.D. in Multidisciplinary Sciences for Environmental Protection from the University of Belgrade. She is working on the reclamation and remediation of degraded lands using selected plants, with a focus on metal and metalloid transport and accumulation in the soil–plant system. She investigates these processes in a variety of mine wastes and other anthropogenically altered environments, such as ruderal habitats or regions affected by environmental disasters. She also investigates the phytoremediation capabilities of many plant taxa found in degraded regions, including sensitive and endangered, medicinal, invasive, and ruderal plants. She has over 60 international and national research papers on diverse environmental themes to her credit.
