Domenico Maria Doronzo

Contract Scientist (Juan de la Cierva Incorporación)


Educational Background

  • Ph.D in Earth Sciences (spec. Physical Volcanology), University of Bari, Italy, 2011
  • M.S. in Geological Sciences (spec. Physical Volcanology), University of Bari, Italy, 2007
  • B.S. in Geological Sciences (spec. Petrology & Volcanology), University of Bari, Italy, 2005


Research Interests

Integration of theoretical, numerical, experimental, field and laboratory approaches to investigate explosive volcanic eruptions (eruptive styles and pyroclastic currents), sand and dust storms, and turbidity currents, particularly from a thermo fluid-dynamics viewpoint.
