I am a NERC Independent Research Fellow and I study active volcanic and tectonic processes at plate margins. In 2018 I am starting a project to study magma/water interaction in the oceanic lithosphere integrating geophysical imaging, rock physics, and laboratory experiments.
Expertise: Marine Geophysics, Tectonics, Volcano seismology, Seismic Tomography
Short bio. After graduating in Physics of the Earth and Environment from the University of Trieste (Italy), I obtained a PhD in Marine Geophysics at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton (UK). This was followed by three years as a PostDoc at The University of Oxford working on a NERC-funded project to study seamount subduction. From January 2014 to October 2016 I was based at Géoazur (Nice, France) supported by an AXA Postdoctoral Fellowship.
