MY RESEARCH

The focus of my research is the understanding of the physical mechanisms responsible for the transfer and emplacement of magma in the Earth’s crust and its eruption at the surface.
Our scientific mission is to understand how magmatic processes contribute to shaping our planet and what are the main physical factorscontrolling the frequency and magnitude of volcanic eruptions. Because more than 400 millions people live in the proximity of a volcano, this last, is an issue of high societal importance.
