I am a Alexander Von Humboldt Fellow at the University of Hamburg. I have been a PhD student at the University of Genova working within the framework of the ERC-Truedepths project until the beginning 2021 . My research is focused on the use of raman spectroscopy and elastic barometry to study host-inclusion systems for determining the P-T conditions of geological processes.
During my PhD I developed raman spectroscopy methods to be used for elastic geobarometric purposes to investigate the structural-petrologic field relationships in UHP metamorphic terrains with a comparison to classical barometric method and pseudosections.
During my MSc thesis I developed a field and a petrologic study about metasomatic reactions involving COH fluids at HP condition between serpentinites and marbles (Voltri Massif, Western Alps) with implication to C cycling in subduction zones. The theoretical study was also focused on the thermodynamic modeling trough phase diagram computation (i.e. Pseudosections) in order to define the P-T-X metamorphic conditions of the process.
