Research interests

  • Integrated geophysical-petrological thermochemical imaging of lithosphere and underlying upper mantle using inversion and forward approaches and different data sets at global and regional scales.
  • 3D Lithospheric modelling integrating different geophysical data: potential fields, surface heat flow, elevation, seismic velocities, electrical conductivity, and mantle composition.
  • Lithosphere-Asthenosphere boundary geometry in the Atlantic-Mediterranean transition (western limit of the Eurasian-African plate boundary).
  • Electrical conductivity of the upper mantle minerals
