The focus of my research is on:

  • 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 the Permian/Triassic and Triassic/Jurassic boundaries
  • Comparison at a high stratigraphic resolution between Tethyan and Panthalassan provinces to disentangle the factors controlling different organisms' distribution patterns and evolution
  • Taxonomy and systematics of foraminifers as a tool for assessing past depositional and ecological conditions
  • Delving deep into the Panthalassa Ocean - REEFCADE Project (see below)
