My Research

  • Palaeoenvironmental and palaeogeographic evolution of the Tethyan margins and the Panthalassa Ocean
  • Carbonates from these marine systems as archives of the global biological and ecological crisis at both Permian/Triassic and Triassic/Jurassic boundaries
  • Comparison at high stratigraphic resolution between Tethyan and Panthalassan provinces to disentangle the factors controlling different organisms distribution patterns and evolution
  • Taxonomy and systematic of foraminifers as a tool for assessing past depositional and ecological conditions
