Gianluca is pursuing his Doctoral studied in Earth and Planetary Sciences at the IRSPS. His background includes experience in processing planetary images, use of GIS software for planetary mapping, and generation of digital elevation models using different techniques. His current research activity focuses on the study of the internal structure of Mercury combining gravity data with imaging and topographic data of characteristic surface landforms. He also supports projects that investigate potential formation mechanisms of chaotic terrains and other characteristic landforms lying on the icy satellites around the Jupiter system, particularly on Europa.
