His research field deals with the materials for road and airfield pavements. In particular, his activity is focused on the special pavements for orthotropic steel deck bridges, hot and cold recycling of reclaimed asphalt, clear binder for road pavements, use of waste materials in asphalt mixtures, asphalt rubber and modelling of damage evolution in asphalt mixtures.
