Research summary

My research focuses on the magmatic and volcanic processes, from the melt generation to the magma eruption. Particularly, I study the transport and thermodynamic properties of natural silicate glasses and melts as a function of the chemical composition, volatile and crystal content, and oxygen fugacity. I use a multidisciplinary approach which includes high-temperature and pressure experimental petrology and volcanology, spectroscopic techniques, and x-ray tomography.

My studies give insight into the evolution of the melt structure during magma storage and ascent, providing information on both the magma remobilisation and the change in the eruptive style of volcanoes.
