Interessi di Ricerca

Since 2016 I have been a researcher at Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn in Naples (Italy) and my research interests are molecular ecology, population genetics and phylogeny of marine organisms. I study mainly fish and sharks, from coastal to the deep-sea, with the focus on cryptic species and provide novel molecular tools for fishery and conservation management strategies. I am applying a seascape genetics approach to evaluate the interactions between oceanography and temporal as well as spatial variation in allele frequencies. I am also using genomics for a better understanding of speciation processes and transcriptomics to explore genes that better respond to adaptation to environmental changes as well as understanding mechanisms of adaptation to extreme environments (deep sea environments and hydrothermal vents) using high throughput sequencing platforms. I am involved in several studies addressing questions on marine biodiversity using metabarcoding approaches and use of eDNA. I am also interested in contributing to technological development for research at sea and contributed to the development of an autonomous biosampler during my Marie Curie grant spent at CNR-INF of Genova (Italy). I have projects in collaboration with the Institute of Robotics of the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa (Italy) for the development of bioinspired vehicles for marine research. During my career I have gained a wide experience in research cruises, joining several expeditions in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean (some of which as Chief scientist) and as Principal Investigator in international projects.
