Mattia Pistone

University of Georgia

I was awarded BSc in Geological Sciences at Università G. D’Annunzio in Chieti and MSc in Geodynamics, Geophysics, and Volcanology at University of Rome La Sapienza (Italy). I obtained the PhD in Earth Science at ETH-Zurich (Switzerland) after completing the research project on “Physical Properties of Bubble- and Crystal-bearing Magmas”. I conducted postdoctoral research projects on magma transport and chemical evolution in the crustal domain at the University of Bristol (United Kingdom) and the National Museum of Natural History of the Smithsonian Institution (Washington, DC, USA). I was a Maître Assistant (Lecturer) at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) where I explored the fluid transport in the deep crustal realm of the Western Alps. I am currently Assistant Professor in Petrology and Volcanology at the University of Georgia (USA). I am director of the MAGMA MIA Laboratory, one of the six PIs leading the ICDP DIVE (Drilling the Ivrea-Verbano zonE) project, and an enthusiastic researcher investigating the mechanics of multiphase magmas, eruption dynamics, and volatile cycles in the Earth’s interior using a combination of experimental, analytical, and field-based approaches.I apply a creative approach transcending traditional disciplinary boundaries in my research and in my lectures.
