Curriculum

2011, February - 2011, October: "La Sapienza" University of Rome fellowship for post-doctoral research activity at the University of Barcelona.
2010, March: PhD in Earth Sciences - University of Rome "La Sapienza" (XXII cycle); Supervisor - prof. J. Pignatti, Co-supervisors - Dr. F. Carbone (IGAG, CNR), Prof. L. Stamatopoulos (University of Patras).
Title: "Biostratigraphy and facies analysis of the Ionian Islands Paleogene, with emphasis on larger foraminifera".
2006, May: Master of Geological Sciences at the University of Rome "La Sapienza", graduated cum laude.
Thesis title: "Biostratigraphy of the Paleocene-Lower Eocene in the Taranta valley (Maiella), with emphasis on larger foraminifera" under the supervision of prof. Johannes Pignatti.Minor graduate degree thesis in Mineralogy on the classification trough x-ray diffraction of orthoclase samples for archaeological purposes, under the supervision of prof. Adriana Maras.

Scientific interests

Paleogene larger foraminifera biostratigraphy, mainly referred to carbonate platform and platform-basin transition environments. Larger foraminifera systematic, aimed to the research of new biostratigraphically useful taxa. Microfacies analysis, mainly focused on microfaunapaleoecological and paleoenviromental interpretation. The doctorate project involved all the overmentioned interests and it was aimed to improve the knowledge of the Paleogene in shallow water environments, the resolution of larger foraminifera biostratigraphy and to the study of some poor-known aspects of the Ionian Islands paleontology and geology.
The Post-Doctoral activity is based on a considerable amount of material provided to Prof. Pignatti by the Yemen Geological Survey (logs and about 2,700 thin sections from 60 stratigraphic sections, mainly from Hadramaut) and from Somalia, and will benefit from the ongoing fieldwork and research activities focusing on Yemen and Oman carried on by the research group based in Barcelona. The aim of the project is to improve knowledge on the Paleogene biostratigraphy of Eastern Yemen, the correlation with formations of the neighbouring areas (especially Oman and Somalia), and to provide a detailed systematic study of the larger foraminiferal assemblages.
