Research interests

During my PhD, I have been studying the response of macroalgae to acidification in the natural acidified site, Castello Aragonese, Ischia. Continuous release of CO2 through volcanic vents make it a perfect site to study long term acidification effects on marine organisms. I am combining different approaches including transcriptomics, genetics, biochemistry and photo-physiology to understand the response of Sargassum vulgare to the acidification. This study may help us to understand how fleshy macroalage may respond in the future ocean.
