Research Interests

The deep-sea, despite being the largest ecosystem on Earth, is one of the least studied, and yet, expanding exploration and industrial exploitation of the vast and unknown deep-ocean environment may act synergistically and span extensive areas, causing regime shifts and alter deep-ocean life-supported services. My research interests are about investigating, with a multidisciplinary approach, the deep-sea megafauna of the Dohrn Canyon, a submarine canyon whose depth ranges from 250 to 1300 meters. It is located in the Gulf of Naples, therefore is close to a high urbanized and industrialized coast. More specifically, my project aims to study for the first time the biodiversity and the ecological interactions of megafauna in the canyon and the possible anthropogenic impact on these organisms. My research will involve biological analyses of the present species, evaluating them qualitatively and quantitatively, studying their possible trophic relationships and, through ecotoxicological analyses, determining contaminants levels in the collected species.
