Selected projects

  • Magmas at Depth: an Experimental Study at Extreme Conditions (ERC Starting grant).

    This programme, anchored on the in situ study of silicate liquids at high pressure, aims at answering questions relevant to the presence of magmas at depth, whether that be in the present Earth or in its earliest times, during differentiation of the planet.
