- Facies and microfacies analyses of marine carbonates for paleoenvironment reconstructions
- Cenozoic C-isotope stratigraphy to identify the response of shallow-water carbonate systems to global C-cycle perturbations
- Sr and Nd isotopic analyses for paleoceanographic reconstructions and to discriminate the complex relationship between global climatic changes and regional controlling factors on carbonate production.
ATTIVITA' E RESPONSABILITA' PROFESSIONALI
Leader of the project: “La risposta dei sistemi carbonatici del Mediterraneo Centrale alle perturbazioni cenozoiche del ciclo del carbonio [Central Mediterranean carbonate systems response to the Cenozoic carbon cycle perturbations”. Funded by the Sapienza University of Rome, February 2019-August 2019. The project has been carried out at the GeoZentrum NordBayern, Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen (Germany).
Leader of the project: “Unravelling the Miocene oceanographic control on the carbon cycle dynamics in the Central Mediterranean”. Funded by the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen (Germany), october 2018- january 2019. Funding were made available within the Programme to realize equal opportunities for women in research and teaching.
Leader of the project for young researchers "Avvio alla Ricerca" funded by Sapienza, University of Rome, 2016. Title of the project: "Sr isotope composition of the Miocene central Mediterranean carbonate successions and paleoceanographic implications".
Leader of the project "Dating the Monterey event in the Central Mediterranean shallow-water record: the Latium-Abruzzi Platform case study", within the Synthesys Framework, performed at the Geochemistry laboratory of the Natural History Museum of Stockholm (SE-TAF). Funding to SYNTHESYS is made available by the European Community – Research Infrastructure Action under the FP7 "Capacities" Specific Programme.
Winner of the “IAS Post Graduate Grant Scheme” 2015. Title of the project: “The impact of isotopic events on the central Mediterranean carbonate successions between the late Eocene and middle Miocene”.
Lecturer within the “Flügel Course 2019, the International Course on Carbonate Microfacies” (two 1-week courses) organised by Prof. Dr. Axel Munnecke of the GeoZentrum Nordbayern, Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen (Germany).
