Emanuele Tondi is Associate Professor in the School of Environmental Sciences of the University of Camerino, Italy. His research activity is mainly addressed to the study of brittle deformation, and on its applications to solving regional and seismotectonic problems, as well as the recovery of geofluids from the subsurface. Specifically, he has carried out investigations on: 1) active tectonics of central and southern Italy, focusing on the seismogenic potential of active faults; and 2) nucleation and growth processes of faults and fractures in carbonate rocks. He is the co-Director of the research project "Reservoir Characterization Project;” funded by a Consortium  of Oil Company, the National Coordinator  of the "The deformation in carbonate rocks: implications for the characterisation and modelling of natural reservoirs of geofluids", project funded by the italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (Ministero dell'Istruzione, dell'Università e della Ricerca, or MIUR) from 2011-2013.
