Research

My research interests are focused on the study of Ichnology, that is the study of traces produced by organisms.
You can find me on the peak of the mountains looking for trace fossils or, alteratively, I can annoy your beach-time while looking for recent worm burrows on the tidal flat.
However, not only Ichnology: I'm also researching on Geologic Art and Geotourism...
