Curriculum Vitae

Supervisor: Wiebe Kooistra
Appointed on project: EMBRIC, AssemblePlus
Period: from 01/2017 to 12/2019

Research Interest and role in project

I am a marine ecologist with a background in microalgal biology. My research experience during my PhD was focused on the ecological monitoring of benthic harmful algal blooms in the Tyrrhenian Sea, in particular blooms of the toxic benthic dinoflagellate Ostreopsis cf. ovata in the Gulf of Naples.

I collaborate in EU projects within the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC-ERIC). EMBRC is a distributed pan-European research infrastructure (RI) Consortium of marine biological stations across Europe. This research infrastructure provides excellence services to users from academia and industry for the access to marine ecosystems and their biological resources.

Currently I am working as access officer of the Transnational Access program of the EMBRIC project (European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster).
EMBRIC is a cluster project of European Research Infrastructures. The objective of EMBRIC is to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and innovation from marine Bio-Resources. EMBRIC aims to promote new applications derived from marine organisms in fields such as drug discovery, novel foods and food ingredients, aquaculture selective breeding, bioremediation, cosmetics and bioenergy.

I collaborate also for the transnational access project Assemble Plus, the Association of the European Marine Biological Station Expanded.
