Research interests

Expand knowledge and improve medical practices in veterinary medicine for the prevention and treatment of diseases in marine organisms kept in captivity. These activities are mainly applied: to improve the housing procedures for the optimization of the environmental conditions in order to make them as responsive as possible to the needs of the different species housed and to reduce the risk of contamination by potentially dangerous microorganisms; to the health monitoring; to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting marine organisms kept in captivity. Concerning subjects retrieved and transferred to the sea turtle rescue center, the veterinary surgeon support aims to improve therapeutic approaches in order to return to these subjects optimal health conditions, compatible with the release to wild.
