Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

Main areas of expertise are the ecology, and distribution of zoo-benthic communities of rocky bottoms, with particular interest in cnidarian associations of the circalittoral and bathyal zone.
She started to deal with conservation issues applied to the marine environment in 1998, with the characterisation of benthic populations for several feasibility studies required for the establishment of MPAs. She acquired experience in habitat classification as a member of the ETC/BD (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity) team, revising the classification of marine habitats in Europe.
Excellent experience in the acquisition and processing of image data from a remote platform. Starting from planning sampling according to research objectives, to on-board data logging. Competence on several software for the post-processing of photo-video images in order to extrapolate functional data to:
-Description and distribution of habitats and species, Biodiversity assessment, Biocenotic, bionomic and thematic maps, Habitat classification.
-Species distribution in relation to environmental parameters, Identification of proxies for habitat assessment, quantification of pressures, and mitigation of impacts, Long-term monitoring
-Environmental impact studies, directive implementations (MSFD, HABITAT), Medium-term in situ observations of target species.
He is currently part of the SZN working group studying mesophotic and deep-sea environments. Here he will apply his expertise to the study of habitats and species by means of image analysis. In addition, the collection of samples will enable comparative studies of ecophysiology in natural and aquarium environments.
