Conservation Scientist. My research activities are focused on the diagnostics of stone materials used in Architectural Cultural Heritage, like historic buildings and monuments. The main purpose of my project is the setup of a protocol of non-destructive investigations for the protection of historic buildings and the prevention of the risk of collapse of the stone elements. I’m also working in the development of a management system for the survey data, to support monitoring and intervention planning.
