Research: An integrated approach to mid-term seismic prediction

I am a theoretical statistical physicist with a wide background in non-equilibrium, disordered and critical systems with applications to Earth Science. I graduated in Physics (BSc, 110/110 with honors, thesis: "Una analisi della dinamica crostale", advisors: Prof. Fulvio Ricci and Prof. Carlo Doglioni) in 2019 and in Theoretical physics (MSc, 110/110 with honors) in 2021. My thesis "Near breaking faults" (advisors: Prof. Carlo Doglioni and Prof. Andrea Pelissetto, coadvisor: Dr. Luciano Telesca) introduces a new framework for linking coseismic processes to large-scale seismic phenomena; moreover, it analyses the role of fault stress perturbations in order to shed a light on the physics of earthquakes. I have been a PhD student in Geoscience at the Department of Earth Sciences since November 2021. My research activity focuses on physical modeling of seismicity, but I am also interested in global geodynamics and tectonic processes. My main goal is a deep knowledge of the physics of seismicity, which ultimately means how large-scale crustal instability develops, in order to get reliable seismic hazard assessment.
