Research Interests

My research interest focuses on the active deformation over the Quaternary, but I am also playing with the different geological timescales to understand the evolution of the tectonic plate boundaries.

In the last years, I have mainly focused on how the deformation from a strike-slip fault system is transferred to an extensive fault system. To do so, I use an integrative approach of fieldwork (on-land and off-shore), geomorphology, structural studies, photogrammetry, and geochemistry analyses.
