Education & career

Post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Marine Sciences of the Italian National Research Council (CNR ISMAR, Venice), with a MSc in marine biology and PhD in Ecology and climate change.

Research activities

Main research interests include cumulative impact assessments, maritime spatial planning, community ecology, ecological monitoring and restoration, marine bioconstructions diversity patterns and environmental protection. I'm involved in several national and international projects (Ritmare, Supreme, Simwestmed, Pharos4MPAs, PORTODIMARE, SOUNDSCAPE, MSPMED) aimed to provide guidelines to foster efficient and coherent maritime spatial planning for habitat conservation and mitigation of human impacts.
