I am interested in exploring the history of contemporary science and technology, especially in connection with the emergence of ‘big science’ and the development of international relations. I am pursuing an independent and interdisciplinary research programme which aims at providing a novel picture of the relations existing between the scientific community, the diplomacy and the intelligence agencies, especially during the post-WW2 period and the Cold War years.

I have focused my research on the Quaternary geology, geomorphology, and tectonics of mountain belts at high latitude and high altitude. I am particularly concerned with quantifying the timing and rates of landscape evolution in these regions to understand the interplay between internal (tectonic) and external (surface) processes.
