   RESEARCH INTERESTS

 Interplay between weathering processes, soil genesis and geomorphic dynamics at different scales; reconstruction of geomorphological evolution and Quaternary climatic/environmental changes, including paleopedology- and geoarchaeology-based approaches; soil chronosequences; erosion processes in the Mediterranean environment, with a special focus on badlands; estimation of long-term and short-term erosion rates; shallow landslides; multi-temporal historical reconstruction of fluvial dynamics; geosites; volcanic soils (even in non-volcanic areas) as archives of crypto-tephras and paleoenvironmental proxies; planetary geology with emphasis on terrestrial soils as Martian analogues; distribution, behaviour and fate of trace elements (including potentially toxic metals and radionuclides) in soils.
