Maria Cristina Facchini is a geoscientist and research director based, since the 1980s, at the University of Bologna in Italy.

Her research is directed at the process of change, natural and man-made, from aerosols in atmospheric composition, and at how that change is affecting many aspects of our lives, including climate, ultraviolet radiation levels, and regional air quality. These impact, as her group's website puts it, "the fundamental necessities of human existence", such as human health, food production, and water resources.[1] She has published over 100 papers, many of which have been critically acclaimed. She is on multiple panels/boards, including, since 2011, the Scientific Advisory Board of the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz, Germany.[2]
