PhD in GIS-Seismo-volcanology
Extreme Sports & Videogames
I was born and raised in Catania, Sicily, Italy, Europe, Earth.
I have been being fascinated by earthquakes and volcanoes since I was eight years old, when
I experienced my very first earthquake at school.
I attended both my Bachelor Degree in Geology and my Master of Science in Geophysics at the University of Catania, where I had the chance to study Mt. Etna volcano.
Being also very much interested in computer science, I focused both of my theses on the joint analysis between seismic analysis and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), with a view to perform a 3D image of the volcano’s interior.
Indeed, due to some difficulties linked to this 3D analysis and visualization, I started to work on the developement of a new volcano-oriented Geographic Information System (VolGIS).
Later, I improved my Geoinformatics skills attending a few courses at Aalborg University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
Following my Danish experience, I moved to Patagonia, Argentina, in order to pursue a PhD in volcano seismology (mainly attenuation and scattering tomography) and to keep working on my “VolGIS” project.
Since October 2019 I started a Youtube channel on which I talk about my passions: seismology, volcanology and geographic information science.
A pop-science oriented channel, its goal is to make these topics easy to understand for everyone.
The channel is mainly in Italian language but I do not exclude the possibility to do future videos in other languages, such as English or Spanish.
