My research activity concerns both the analytical and numerical investigation
of   fundamental  problems in the field of plasma physics.
My main achievements have been reached in the study of magnetic reconnection,  a basic process in conducting fluids and plasmas, in collisionless regimes.

More recently i focused on:

- transport barriers to field line motion in chaotic magnetic fields, by means of Finite Time Lypaunov Exponents techniques;

- coupling between fluid and magnetic instabilities;

- description of the reconnection process through a gyrofluid approach that takes into account finite ion Larmor radius effects into a fluid description;

- generation of suprathermal electrons during reconnection events.
