Researcher in Applied Geophysics, Department of Geosciences
University of Padova, Padova, Italy
My research experiences are mainly oriented to the multidisciplinary approach of applied geophysics. I work mainly on i) active and passive seismic for soil dynamic characterization for earthquake engineering purposes; ii) 3D time lapse electrical tomography for hydrological characterization targets at several scale from catchments characterization to single plant roots imaging; iii) electro-magnetic and radar methods for environmental studies from industrial polluted sites to natural conservation programs. My experiences concerns geophysical site characterization for structural and hydrological purposes. I was involved in 5 European Council Projects working on classical subsoil imaging with seismic refraction to surface wave analyses. I worked on the 2D surface wave multi offset technique in order to reconstruct 2D geometries by the use of common multi channels arrays. I worked also on Electrical methods electro-magnetic measurements and GP-Radar for several sites characterisation. Part of my past research was on time-lapse electrical tomography for the bio-hydrological interactions in order to quantify on site hydrological-parameter of the critical zone. I was involved in several international collaborations as applied geophysics I'm reviewer since 2007 of 12 top ranking journals (listed below) and I am author and co-author of more than 30 ISI papers.
