Research interests

I am working on the tectonic evolution of the Dinarides. I have a weakness for the Velebit Breccia and the Promina Beds.

I use balanced cross-sections and I know (almost) everything about MOVE.

Apart from the Dinarides, I am interested in the Iranian Plateau and the Appenines.
