Interessi di ricerca

Le linee di ricerca principali riguardano la sedimentologia, stratigrafia e paleoecologia dei carbonati mesozoici e cenozoici dell’area Mediterranea (Appennini, Baleari, Malta, Corsica e Sardegna, Sicilia, Salento, Alpi Liguri), con particolare riferimento alle ricostruzioni dei modelli deposizionali, eterogeneità di facies, paleoceanografia, paleoclima, al record delle perturbazioni del ciclo del C, all'evoluzione dei substrati delle praterie a fanerogame e alla geologia degli idrocarburi.  Tali analisi si basano sull’utilizzo dell’analisi di facies sul terreno, integrata dalle analisi di laboratorio che prevedono l’analisi quantitativa delle microfacies e le analisi geochimiche (isotopi del O & C,   radiogenici Nd & Sr, elementi in traccia) su dati di affioramento e su carote.
