  • Member of the American Chemical Society
  • Member of the Executive Committee of the Italian Geological Society
  • President of the Italian Association of Petrologists from 2005 to 2008

Main expertises and field of research interest:
  • Analytical chemistry on whole rock and mineral samples through X-Ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF), Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS), Instrumental Neutron Activation Analyses (INAA), Electron Probe Micro Analyses (EPMA).
  • Isotopic Analyses on whole rock and mineral samples through Thermal Ionisation Mass Spectrometry (TIMS); isotopic systems
  • Petrology, volcanology and geochemistry of volcanic rocks with the aims of elucidating: genetic processes of magmas, mantle composition, pre-eruptive mechanisms in active volcanoes, teprho-stratigraphy in recent and active volcanoes. Some interest has been on petrologic studies of artefacts of cultural heritages.
  • Volcanic magmatic systems in Italy, Spain, Greece, Libya, Yemen, Ethiopia, Mexico, and Antarctica
  • Isotope geochemistry of wine, grapes, olive, and olive oil and their soil and geological substrata aimed to the geographic traceability of agriculture products and wine terroir.
