A selection of new research published during January.
When the Annual Review of Marine Science got in touch requesting an article looking back over the more than 40 years of her career, a career which brought her from Venice to California to MIT, Prof Malanotte Rizzoli, was honored and delighted. The resulting autobiography "Venice and I: How a City Can Determine the Fate of a Career" is the lead article in the January 2017 issue.
As Malanotte Rizzoli sums up in the abstract: "Quoting the ancient Romans: Audentes Fortuna iuvat. Being in the right place at the right time is useless if you do not grasp your Fortuna and build upon it [...] living in and working for Venice has been the privilege and Fortuna of my life."
