M.Sc. in Geological Sciences at Università di Roma Tre.
Thesis on “The evolution of La Fossa volcano magmatic system” Tutor: Prof. Franco Barberi;  Co-Tutor: Dr. Claudia Romano.
2008: Degree in Geological Sciences at Palermo University

Research activities (Volcanology, Petrography, Geochemistry, Mineralogy):

Geochemistry, Petrography, Experimental Volcanology.

Geochemistry – whole rock (major and trace elements, Sr-Nd-Pb isotopes), fluid inclusions (noble gas geochemistry – He, Ne, Ar, Xe), fluids (chemical and isotopic  composition of gas and fumaroles, CO  2 flux degassing from the soil and soil T prospections). Petrography (polarized microscopy, FE-SEM, EMPA). Experimental Volcanology (textural analysis of bubble –BSD- and crystals –CSD-; Rheological  measurements: uniaxial press, concentric cylinder rheometer, micropenetration, differential scanning calorimeter).
