I have 77 peer-reviewed scientific papers published or in press in international journals. I also co-edited 2 books since 2017. The impact of my publication is documented in the Google scholar database (see below). 

The secret is comprised in three words — Work, Finish, Publish

Michael Faraday

A large variety of Earth Science disciplines are covered in my publications: metamorphic petrology, petrochronology, geochemistry, thermodynamic modelling, geochemistry and mineralogy. My main contributions are in the field of computational petrology and analytical geochemistry as well as case study to deepen our understanding of the evolution of metamorphic belts.
