My research focuses on the study of the ecology and ecophysiology of marine ecosystem engineering species (primarily gorgonians, soft and stony corals) to provide understanding for the sustainable management and conservation of marine ecosystems located from the coastal area to the continental shelf and slope.

My research experience began during the undergraduate studentship with the development of the project to obtain a degree in Biological Sciences at the Università Roma Tre (Rome, Italy), it continued during the PhD thesis at the Institut de Ciències del Mar (CSIC) (Barcelona, Spain), and it has been enriched by acquiring ecophysiological knowledge during the postdoctoral position at the Centre Scientifique de Monaco (CSM) (Monaco, Principality of Monaco) and the Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, Scotland).
