I graduated in University of Padua (Italy). I did my Bsc in "Sedimentology of coastal environment in Siena Basin (Pliocene)". Msc focussed on petroleum geology with thesis at ENI (internship) titled "Stratigraphy and sedimentology of ventian foredeep outcropping and buried (Late Oligocene-Miocene)".

My PhD (University of Padua, Italy) was on fluvial response to tectonic control in upland incised valley system during Pleistocene in Northern Apennines. In particular I analysed the sedimentology and geomorphology of the area integrated with geophysics investigation (electrical tomography, passive seismic data and well cores). As a final step I verified and tested the conceptual model through a numerical reconstruction of the area with geomorphic and stratigraphic forward modelling (internship in CSIRO).

Currently I joined the sector of coal research working on outcrop analogue modelling and forward stratigraphic modelling. I bring my skills in sedimentology in our team group strenghten reconstruction of depositional environments within mesozoic basins of Eastern Australia.
