PhD in geophysics from Grenoble University, France in 2013. PhD was focused on seismic noise correlation with particular interest about body waves emergence from noise correlation. Piero joined MIT in the fall of 2013.


Piero’s research interests include; Ambient noise correlation, deep Earth imaging using noise correlation, scattered waves, seismic noise sources, deep earthquakes rupture mechanisms, massively data management and analysis, regional seismic tomography.
