Research interests

My research addresses several questions at the interface between marine ecology and conservation. My scientific interests focus on marine ecology, biodiversity, and conservation in marine benthic habitats. I have studied different benthic habitats, primarily rocky reef ecosystems mainly in Antarctica and in the Mediterranean Sea.
I merge complementary approaches, such as field surveys on natural ecosystems and controlled laboratory experiments, with statistical methods to synthesize and interpret data. Most recently, I have focused on the study of the effects of ocean acidification on ecosystems by using natural laboratories, represented by new CO2 vent’s systems recently discovered along the coast of Ischia, Italy. This scientific work is now conducted jointly in Micheli and Palumbi labs at Hopkins Marine Station and in Maria Cristina Gambi's group at the Villa Dohrn-Benthic Ecology Center in Ischia.
My current research on ocean acidification is sponsored by a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action under the European Research Program H2020 with the project Future4Oceans (H2020-MSCA-IF-2015, N 702628) to be done jointly between Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn, Naples, Italy and Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University for 3 years. In addition, a parallel project named High-CO2 Seas, funded by the Total Foundation and including 7 partner institutions from the USA and Europe, will complement the Future4Oceans project.
