Research profile

- Tectono-metamorphic evolution of orogenic belts (Dinaric-Hellenic belt and the Vardar Zone, Southeastern Europe);

- Processes of oceanic closure, origin and structure of ophiolitic and related rocks within the collisional marginal setting;

- Structure and development of shallow shear zones and chaotic units, including the role of overpressured fluids in tectonically-controled foredeep basins (Northern Apennines);

- Fault analysis and determination of paleostress tensor;

- Linkage between the tectonics and sedimentation in tectonically-controlled basins (foreland basins of Northern Apennines, Tertiary Piedmont Basin and South-Central Pyrenees).
