Curriculum Vitae

Research Intersts

Marine ecosystems face multiple anthropogenic and environmental pressures threatening their stability and functioning. Understanding the mechanisms and the effects of these factors can provide useful information for managing and mitigating their action on marine communities and habitats. My studies are mainly in the field where I investigate the biodiversity associated with marine hydrothermal vents, particularly in the area of the Southern Tyrrhenian Sea. Other research interests focus on the impact of marine litter pollution including ghost fishing on marine species, habitats, and trophic ecology.
