Alessandro Maria Michetti

Full Professor

My research is focused on the reconstruction of the recent landscape evolution in order to define geological criteria for assessing natural hazards, in particular related to strong earthquakes. I am interested in the study of coseismic environmental effectsand their use as diagnostic indicators of the degree of macroseismic intensity

Franz Livio

Associate Professor

My main research fields are paleoseismologyand active tectonics. Earthquake geology needs a multidisciplinary approach relying on seismic reflection data interpretationtectonic geomorphologyremote sensingfield survey and trenching; so I gained a little of expertize on each of these discipline!

Maria Francesca Ferrario

Researcher

My research mainly regards the analysis of earthquake effectson the Earth’s surface for mitigating seismic risk, with a particular interest in sequences of moderate-to-strong earthquakes. I integrate information about surface and subsurface geology obtained through core drillingsand geotechnical probeswith GIS mappinghydrogeological and environmental monitoring

Raffaele Bitonte

PhD Student

The main topic of my PhD research is the structural and depositional validation of a methodology for reservoir modelling. My interests are focused on the geological and structural characterisation of complex areas in order to understand the deformative mechanismsand the geological evolutionwith an eye to HC resources exploration. Subsurface data (seismic and well logs) and 3D modellingare my best friends!

Emanuele Scaramuzzo

PhD Student

My research interests span from Tectonics to Structural Geology, and specifically of field mappingstructural and stratigraphic studiesinsedimentary and metamorphic orogenic belts, and magnetic analysis. The main subject of my research is the definition of the role played by tectonic and sedimentary (gravitational) processes in the formation of mélanges s.l.(or chaotic rock bodies) in active margins, and specifically in ancient accretionary complexes

Nicoletta Nappo

PhD Student

As Civil Environmental Engineer, my interests regard the impact of natural hazards on the built environment, i.e. buildings and infrastructures. My research is focused on the assessment of road damage and its correlation with ground movements by means of radar (SAR) C-band and X-band satellite images, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and terrestrial monitoring systems
