About Me Publications
At present, I'm the appointed researcher in the COLOSSEO research project (ERC-Horizon 2020-Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions-Global Fellowship-GA N° 795396) which aims to investigate possible evidence of active compressional deformation in southern Italy. Previously, I have mostly carried out research activity on the following Italian topics:

- seismotectonic framework of recent seismic sequences in Italy: Norcia 2016-2017, L’Aquila 2009 (Central Italy), Ferrara 2012 (Northern Italy);
- 3D model building of seismogenic sources;
- geological-structural investigation aimed to the 3D reconstruction of the carbonate reservoir prone to geothermal resource exploitation in central Italy;
- active tectonics and kinematic analysis of normal faults in central-southern Italy;
- active stress field and deformation in central-southern Apennines;
- seismotectonic setting of the Sicily and South Tyrrhenian domain.
