Research areas
L’attività di ricerca attuale è principalmente rivolta a: (i) allo studio dei processi della formazione della crosta e della litosfera oceanica nelle dorsali medio-oceaniche, (ii) allo studio dell’evoluzione e della dinamica del mantello terrestre, (iii) allo studio del vulcanismo delle isole oceaniche.
