The scientific activity is mainly devoted to the study of tholeiitic and alkaline magmatism related to extensional setting (Gondwana and Rodinia break-up).  The main research topics are the Late Proterozoic magmatisms of S.Francisco-Congo craton (Gondwana) probably related to the Rodinia break-up; the evolution of the sub-litospheric mantle under the South Americam Platform from Early Proterozoic to Cenozoic; the Triassic magmatism of the Adria Plate; the Central Atlantic Magmatic Province (CAMP) and its implications in the Triassic-Jurassic boundary mass extinction; the evolution of the Parana magmatic Province; the study of mantle xenoliths present in different geodynamic setting; the magmatic evolution of S. Jorge Island (Azore islands); the Jurassic alkaline magmatism of the Lusitan Basin (Portugal); archaeometry.
