I am a Post Doctoral Research Fellow at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University (New York, US). I am also a Honorary Research Associate at the University College London (UK) and a member of the ECS-Repr. team of the EGU Seismology Division. In 2014, I earned a double PhD in Geophysics from the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (France) and the University of Bologna (Italy). Previously, I obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Physics at the University of Bologna (Italy).

My research interests are in solving problems related to emerging fields in Seismology by means of analytical and numerical simulations, in order to develop a theoretical understanding of the generation mechanisms of a variety of environmental processes.

I am particularly interested in:

  • Interaction amongst atmosphere, ocean and solid Earth;
  • Physics of seismic ambient noise generation and noise source characteristics;
  • Seismic signals generated by mass-wasting events; 
  • Analytical and numerical modeling of seismic wave propagation;
  • Seismic tomography and inverse problem.
