Structural geological and material scientific investigations of Greek carbonates. Quantitative microfabric and geochemical analyses with the purpose to develop a new method to identify the source area of antique marbles. Genetic relationships between cathodomicrofabrics and recrystallization of white marbles from Naxos (Greece).
Development of new microstructural analyzing techniques. Teaching. Maintenance and support of scanning electron microscope.
- Research scientist (in collaboration with my Ph.D.) at Institute of Geological Sciences, University of Berne (Switzerland), 2001-2006
Microfabric evolution in deformed carbonate rocks and their role for strain localization in large-scale shear zones from different Helvetic nappes in the Swiss Alps. Quantification of parameters (e.g. temperature, stress, strain rate, geochemistry, fluid flow) that influence the microfabric of deformed pure and second-phase controlled carbonates.
Teaching (excursions, mapping courses, lectures), maintenance and support of scanning electron microscop, Work on “Virtual Campu, Switzerland”.
