Personal profile

Biography

Fabio works in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment, Faculty of Science, Monash University as a ARC Future Fellow 

 

Research interests

I am interested in many aspects of the Earth's dynamics, from seismicity to climate interactions, from mountain building to global plate motions, using a range of modelling methodologies, high performance computing and, lately, application of deep learning.

Supervision interests

Actively seeking highly motivated students for PhD projects.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an international research group of Earth and Computational scientists working on a range of projects.
