SCIENTIFIC AREAS
The research activity, mainly in the field of Structural Geology, has focussed on:
- nucleation of localized ductile shear zones in the Earth's lithosphere
- exhumed pseudotachylyte-bearing (paleoseismic) faults to infer the mechanical and chemical
processes of an earthquake source
- the association of coeval pseudotachylytes (seismic brittle faulting) and mylonites (ductile flow)
as a proxy of the seismic cycle at depth
- microstructures and deformation mechanisms of quartz (as representative mineral of the
continental crust) in mylonites
- role of fluids in deformation of rocks at depth
