Additional functions:
My research focus is the evolution of landscapes (especially mountain landscapes) in response to climate changes and tectonic. I mainly worked in small mountain catchments affected by debris-flows in which the role of climate had or have a primary controll on the evacuation of sediment. My actual field study is in the Andes (northen Argentina), but I worked in the Italian and Swiss Alps before with similar topics. I use cosmogenic nuclides techniques, dendrogeomorphology, remote sensing, aereal imagery and topographic measuraments (DGPS) to analyse and study the landscape. Future areas of interest will regard analogue modeling and probabilistic analysis for debir-flows and floods hazard.
