My research is centered in the field of Earth Sciences and, in particular, in geomorphologycal and volcanic processes. The studies have started at CNR IRPI, since 1994, with the analysis of slope stability regarding some villages of Calabria (SCAI Calabria project). After, I studied debris-flows and the development of methodologies aimed at mitigation of hydrogeological risk through the application of GIS technologies and Cellular Automata models. Since 2005, I’m collaborating with the University of Calabria in research aimed in defining lava flow susceptibility scenarios at Mt. Etna, besides the study of subaqueous and subaerial debris flows always through the use of Cellular Automata.   Research over the past two years has focused on the study of lahars and related risk and on landslide susceptibility, hazard and risk assessments through field survey, photo-interpretation analysis, GIS and geomatic tools.
