His research interests are mainly focused on territorial mobility, with the aim of addressing, with interdisciplinary tools and quantitative and qualitative methods, the study of different types of mobility by reason, duration and range of travel, evaluating the complementary elements and the impact on the departure and arrival societies.

The forms of mobility considered are above all: the international migration; the internal migrations, especially the temporary migrations for work; theurban sprawl o urban spread; the intra-urban home transfers; the commuting for work and study purposes.

THEmetropolitan area of ​​Rome it represents a privileged area of ​​analysis with respect to the study of mobility phenomena, demographic evolution, settlement patterns of residents (Italians and foreigners), as well as carrying out population forecasts at the provincial, municipal and municipal level.
