Earth is a dynamic planet and one of the most powerful forces acting on it and modelling the landscape is tectonics.

We study past earthquakes and neotectonic activity of moderate-to-slow deforming areas through paleoseismology, geophysical analysis and tectonic geomorphology.

We make use of a multidisplinary approach including field mapping, trenching, remote sensing and GIS analysis, electric resistivity tomography and interpretation of seismic reflection data; our efforts are aimed at highlighting all the possible subtle evidence left by past earthquakes in highly dynamic areas.

The group also focuses on the interpretation of field-collected data and on structural geology modeling, making use of advanced structural geology software and sand-box analogue models.
