Short CV

Employee in the Stazione Zoologica since 2004. Majoring in Environmental Sciences at the University of Naples Parthenope.  Since the beginning of my work, I deal in the organization and realization of guided tours, for Public Aquarium of Naples and the Turtle Point of Bagnoli. My main activity is centered in the management of exposition tanks of Aquarium from the maintenance of marine organisms, control and monitoring of chemical and physical parameters of water. Over the years I worked side by side for the care and rehabilitation of sea turtles, hospitalized at the Rescue Center of SZN, specializing in the techniques of first aid and pre-release (tagging and application of satellite monitoring devices) and participating in the research conducted by the Unit Aquarium. As part of my professional activities I got to collaborate with the Cattolica Aquarium, and national and international institutions for managing of marine species in aquarium and training of people of other Sea Turtles Recovery centers both in Italy and abroad (courses RAC-SPA UNEP). In recent years I have had the opportunity to improve techniques of scientific monitoring of Campania’s sea turtle nesting, specializing in the use of data loggers for continuous recording of the temperature parameters of the nests and morphometric measurements of sea turtle hatchling.
