About Francesco Giuntoli

My research is focussed on the study of orogenic chains (Alps, Scandinavian Caledonides, Apennines, Oman Mountains), from the micro- to the macroscale. I am interested in investigating the interactions between deformation mechanisms and metamorphic processes. I reconstruct the tectonometamorphic evolution of polydeformed terranes to unveil mechanisms and processes responsible for the formation of orogens. To do so, I use multidisciplinary tools and skills deriving from structural geology, metamorphic petrology and geochronology, including fieldwork, microstructural and petrographic analyses, electron backscattered diffraction analyses, thermodynamic modelling, electron probe micro-analyser, laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and Raman spectroscopy.
