Fabrizio Storti is full professor of structural geology and tectonics at the Chemistry, Life Sciences and Environmental Sustainability Department, University of Parma, Italy. He is member ad honoris number 3287 of the Academia Europaea and served as member of panel PE10 of the European Research Council (ERC) for four ERC-Starting Grant calls. He was President of the EGU (European Geosciences Union) Tectonics and Structural Geology Division (TS) for the four-year term 2009-2013, and chairman of the EGU Council Topical Events Committee for the three-year term 2013 to 2016. For the University of Parma, from July 2016 to October 2017 he served as delegate of the Rector for ERC grants and on November 1th 2017 he was appointed Vice Rector for the Third Mission of the University, which includes involvement in working groups and committees of the Parma Municipality, the Emilia Romagna region, and the Conference of Italian University Rectors (CRUI).

Fabrizio Storti was appointed Editor-in-Chief of Tectonophysics for the term 2010-2012 and Executive Cchief Eeditor of Solid Earth for the term 2014-2017. He is member of the scientific advisory board of the Journal of Structural Geology (since 2003) and of Tectonophysics (since 2013), and was member of the editorial board of Geology for the term 2016-2018. Fabrizio Storti published more than a hundred of scientific papers in peer reviewed international journals. His H-index is higher than 30 (Scopus). He reviews manuscripts for all international journals dealing with structural geology, tectonics and geodynamics, and is reviewer for the ERC, NSF, MIUR, and other national research agencies.

In 2011 Fabrizio Storti established the Natural and Experimental Tectonics research group (NEXT), mostly funded by industrial grants. The group is very active in performing research on two major fields: (1) integrated structural and petrophysical studies of fault-related folds, fault zones and fault systems; (2) advanced sandbox analogue modelling of geodynamic systems, including the effects of syntectonic erosion and sedimentation. Expertise of NEXT group includes structural and microstructural analysis, tectonics interpretations, analogue modelling, geometric-kinematic modelling, cross-section balancing, laser diffraction particle size analysis, optical grain size and shape analysis, Hg intrusion porosimetry, in situ permeability. Field studies are located in the Apennines, Southern and Western Alps, external Dynarides, Spanish Pyrenees, NE Brazil, Oman, Iran, Antarctica, northern Germany.

The major research interests of Fabrizio Storti include the evolution of (i) fault-related folds and their deformation patterns, with implications for fluid flow; (ii) fault zones and fault systems, including coseismic and aseismic slip, with implications for permeability and fluid flow; (iii) thrust-and-fold belts and their interactions with surface processes, mostly by analogue modelling; (iv) sheared passive margins in their post-rift stage, from both onshore and offshore data sets.

Starting from the academic year 2001-02, Fabrizio Storti has been systematically involved in teaching activities, first at Roma Tre University, where he taught Structural Geology, Tectonics, Cross-Section Balancing, Laboratory of Geology, and participated to many field camps of geological mapping. After moving to the Parma University, in the academic year 2010-2011 he was initially involved in teaching Geology and Lithology in the Faculty of Architecture and then moved to the Faculty of Geology, teaching Structural Geology and Applied Structural Geology. Fabrizio Storti supervised and co-supervised several Ph.D. theses, being most of them funded by his industrial research projects.
