Thanks for showing interest in me and my work. The website is still under constructio so, if you have any questions please do feel free to send me a message!
I am a geochemist and carbonate sedimentologist. My main research interests include:
- the development of the new Dual Clumped Isotope Thermometry (∆47 & ∆48),
- the use of Clumped Isotope Thermometry (∆47) to:
- investigate the thermophysiology of extinct organism,
- reconstruct the climate of the past.
My Bachelor Thesis project focussed on investigating the preservation and the taphonomic history of a specimen (MSP 444) of the Nothosauride family, a group of triassic marine reptiles. The Master Thesis aimed at improving our understanding of the causes that lead the Jurassic carbonate platform of the "Calcare Massiccio" to its drowning. This work and its results contributed to a larger publication published in Brandano et al. (2016).
