Associate professor of Ecology, University Tor Vergata
My research lines are dedicated to the study of the human impact on marine ecosystems through fishing and pollution.
Over the years, I have focused mainly on overfishing, physical impact on substrates and biocenosis, loss of biodiversity and the drivers that regulate the behavior of fishers. My approaches range from the use of satellite data to DNA, passing through statistics and artificial intelligence.
I like to develop new methodological approaches and open-source models in the R environment (including Shiny). I think ecology is the science of complexity and can only be applied with solid interdisciplinary bases.
