2016: Ph.D., Seismology, Imperial College London

2011: M. Sc., Geophysics, University of Trieste

Research Interests

Chiara’s current research uses seismology to understand the interior of the Earth. She is particularly focused in using tomographic methods to image crust and mantle structure from regional (e.g., East African Rift, Gibraltar Arc System) to global scales.
