Research Interests

My current research is focused on the identification and characterization of parasites and potentially pathogenetic infectious agents associated with marine organisms, with special respect to cephalopod hosts. Information on the parasitic fauna of marine vertebrates and invertebrates in Mediterranean is still scarce and mostly subject to taxonomic uncertainty. Moreover the potential effect of infectious agents on their marine hosts at a biological and ecological level is still far from being fully understood. For my research I use microscopy and electron microscopy techniques (SEM and TEM), and molecular tools in order to characterize marine infectious agents and assess their effect on the growth, physiology, behaviour and welfare of hosts.
