About me

My name is Fabrizio Alfano, and I am a physical volcanologist. I largely work on the quantitative characterization of volcanic deposits and products in order to understand the dynamics of the eruptive events that produced them. I am currently post-doctoral Associate Research Assistant in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, working in the research group led by Prof. Amanda Clarke. I was born in Sardinia (Italy), and I achieved my Master at the Universita’ degli Studi di Cagliari in 2005. I am a geology major and focused my interest on volcanology and igneous petrology, with particular interest to explosive eruption physical processes. I achieved my PhD at the Universite’ de Geneve (Switzerland) under the supervision of prof. Costanza Bonadonna and working mainly on volcanic particle characterization, dynamics of magma fragmentation and tephra dispersal and sedimentation (Thesis: Morphology and microtextures of tephra particles).
