Personal profile

Research overview

My research focuses on studying the behaviour of carbon at lower - mantle conditions through themordynamic modelling.
In particular, the aim is to improve our knowledge about carbon - rich fluids - rock interaction and the related diamond formation.
With the same method we are simulating the methane formation inside the Martian Mantle.
