Academic discipline: GEO/02 Stratigraphy and Sedimentology

Short Bio

I graduated at the University of Pisa in 2011. In 2013, I received a Marie-Curie doctoral scholarship at VU Amsterdam, part of the European iTECC project. My research focuses on quantifying tectonic, erosional, and sedimentary processes shaping the Earth's surface, utilizing a multidisciplinary approach. I analyzed the evolution of the Himalayan syntaxes, looking how thermochronometric signals in fluvial sediments evolve in the foreland basin, enhancing our understanding of source to sink processes. I quantified erosion rate variations, using river sediments as proxy of current erosion and past exhumation processes. Additionally, I tested the Helix MC plus noble gas mass spectrometer, allowing more precise dating of young, smaller mica crystals. Recently, I applied cosmogenic radionuclides (i.e., 36Cl) on fluvial terraces to examine drainage basin evolution at the Dinadic-Hellenic junction.
