Curriculum Vitae

Supervisor: Prof.ssa Maria Luisa Chiusano
Appointed on project: PO FEAMP 2014/2020 line 2.51 - Campania Region


Research Interests

I am a spatial ecologist focusing on GIS analysis, ecological modelling and remote sensing. My scientific background includes different topics such as ecology, zoology, genetic, forestry, geography and climatology. My main research interests include global change ecology, climate change, biogeography, conservation biology, invasion, landscape ecology and evolutionary biology. I aim to understand patterns and processes underlying species distribution in space and time and to improve methods for assessing species diversity.
My studies have focused on a wide range of organisms including bacteria, fungi, invertebrates and vertebrates. In the FEAMP project, I am involved on the development of a computational platform
(Geoportal) based on the Arc-GIS framework for spatiotemporal data analysis and modelling applied to marine habitats.
