Fabio A Capitanio

Lecturer in Geophysics, Monash University

An Earth scientist with a MSc in Geology and a PhD in Geophysics. I have been awarded an Australian Research Council's APD and DECRA and I am a Future Fellow.
I study the evolution of the solid Earth, from emergence of continents to plate tectonics, and from the formation of mountain chains to earthquakes, which I address using a blend of analytical and numerical methods, supported by the peta-scale high performance computing facilities at the National Computational Infrastructure.
I am a passionate lecturer at Monash University, where I teach the students how to understand the delicate balance of the planet we inhabit.
