I received a B.S. degree in Geological Sciences from the Univeristy of Milano-Bicocca (Italy) in 2006 and a M.S. degree in Geodynamics, Geophysics and Volcanology from the Sapienza University of Rome (Italy) in 2008. Since then, I've been using geodetic data to study magmatic processes at volcanoes.
I received my PhD in Marine Geology and Geophysics in 2014 from the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami (USA), where I studied the dynamics of magma supply, storage and migration at basaltic volcanoes (Galapagos Islands and Hawaii).
Since June 2014 I am a Research Fellow at the Institure of Geophysics and Tectonics, University of Leeds.

I am interested in understanding how magma moves through the Earth's crust, from source to surface. This means studying processes such as magma supply, storage and transport, before, during and after eruptions. Most of my research focuses on understanding how the Earth's surface deforms in response to magmatic processes, using measurements from both terrestrial (e.g., GPS) and spaceborne (e.g., InSAR) sensors. Further research is devoted at understanding subsurface mass redistribution associated with volcanic activity by looking at the changes in gravity at active volcanoes.
I am currently co-funded by the University of Leeds and the British Geological Survey through FUTUREVOLC (http://futurevolc.hi.is). FUTUREVOLC is a panEuropean research project that commenced on October 1, 2012, funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission. Its goal is to design an integrated system for volcano monitoring by developing new methods and indicators for assessing changes in volcanic activity, increase the understanding of volcanic processes and improve communication. The project is coordinated by the Institute of Earth Sciences, University of Iceland in cooperation with the Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO). 21 research groups in 8 other European countries participate in the project as well.
I am also a researcher/staff member of the Centre for the Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonics (COMET, http://comet.nerc.ac.uk. COMET represents the Dynamic Earth and Geohazards research group within the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO). NCEO is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). COMET involves scientists from the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, University of Leeds, University of Bristol, University of Liverpool, University of Reading, and University College London. We aim to combine satellite observations of Earth's surface movements, topography and gas release with terrestrial observations and modelling to advance understanding of the earthquake cycle, continental deformation and volcanic eruptions, and to quantify seismic and volcanic hazards.
