I obtained a MSc in physics (2003) from the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’ and a PhD in geophysics (2007) from the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich. After two years at Harvard University and five years at the Australian National University, in 2015 I have been appointed Associate Professor of Solid Earth Geophysics at the University of Copenhagen.
My research interests are in observational geodynamics. I constrain forward and inverse quantitative models of the coupled tectonic plates/viscous mantle system with geological/geophysical observations, to advance our understanding of the spatial/temporal patterns of key forces controlling the dynamics over geological time-scales.
