Appointed on project: Marine Plan

Research Interests

I am interested in investigating species’ spatial distribution, abundance trends, and fisheries sciences questions to promote management and conservation. My research mainly focuses on rare and elusive species, such as sharks and their relatives, as well as other data-poor species.
My work spans different aspects of both ecological and conservation sciences: from the investigation of different approaches to determine fish population baselines to the implementation of modeling strategies able to harmonize different data sources. I am also interested in investigating the spatial patterns of large pelagic species using multiple sampling strategies (i.e., eDNA, BRUVS, satellite tags).
