Capacità e interessi: 

Acquisition and  analysis of multi-disciplinary marine geophysical datasets, including:
•  Seismic reflection data - 2D multi-channel data (Crustal lines and middle resolution profiles)
•  Seabed imagery - multibeam echosounders, sidescan sonar systems and Sub Bottom Profilers

Field Experience (Oceanographic and land Campaigns)
Participant in 14 campaigns to the Mediterranean Sea (8), the Peri-Antarctic Oceans (5) and the Antarctic Plateau (1) for over 1 year of shipboard experience and two months in the East Antarctic Continent (Concordia Station); Chief Scientist on 3 campaigns.

Research Interests
• Correlation from halokinetics features to up-ward fluid migration (pre-salt fluids) in Mediterranean Basin from analysis of  multichannel seismic profiles and morphobathymetry data (seepage/venting structures).
• Geophysical study to individuate the relation between recent tectonics and inherited structures in the continental margin.
• Study on the development of mounds, potential biological build-ups in a geological dynamic environment, influenced by gas/fluids and gas/gas hydrate presence (circum-antarctic basins), using geophysical methods.
• Geodynamic systems on Antarctic continental margins.
• Natural gas hydrates in the marine environment.
