qualification: 
Ricercatore
Education: 

• 2002 - 2004: PhD in Applied Geophysics at the University of Trieste. During my PhD, I was involved in the acquisition and processing of seismic data to study shallow and deep aquifers and landslides.

• 1992 – 1998: Master’s degree in Geological sciences at Rome University.

Experience: 

• Since may 2006: Researcher at OGS. The areas of expertise include acquisition, processing, inversion and interpretation of 2D and 3D crustal and high resolution seismic data. I have been working on gas hydrates since 2007, mainly on gas reservoirs located in Antarctica. I have been working on the application of theoretical models for understanding the effects of gas hydrate on climate changes in Antarctica, also using Geographic Information Systems (GIS).  

• 2005 – April 2006: Fellowship at OGS. I was mainly employed in the acquisition, processing, inversion and interpretation of 2D and 3D crustal and high resolution seismic data.

• 2000 - 2001: Visiting researcher at Lancaster University (UK). I worked on aquifer flow and transport models.

Skills & Interests: 

My research is interdisciplinary, spanning the fields of seismic analysis, theory and modelling. Recently, I have primarily focused on the study of:

  1. Theoretical model to describe the effects of gas hydrates on climate changes in the most sensitive areas (Antarctica and Arctic);
  2. Advanced processing, such as Datuming Wave Equation (WED) applied to crustal, high resolution land seismic;
  3. Seismic modelling to describe the seismic effects of hydrate and free gas presence and overpressure conditions;
  4. Integration analysis of different geophysical datasets;
  5. Utilization of Geographic Information System for integration of datasets.
