Dr Massimo Gasparon's research interests are in the fields of: Environmental geochemistry; Arc volcanism, mantle-crust interactions in subduction zone environments; and Potassic and ultrapotassic volcanic rocks in orogenic environments.
He received his PhD from The University of Hobart. His current Research Projects are in the areas of:
- Anthropogenic trace metal contamination in Antarctic fresh waters, soils, and organisms
- Groundwater geochemistry in the Great Artesian Basin
- Magmatic processes in the west Sunda arc and crust/sediment/mantle interactions in a subduction environment
- Potassic and ultrapotassic rocks of the Roman Comagmatic Province (Italy)
- Neogene magmatism of the northern Apenninic Arc (Italy)
