Short CV

Master’s degree in Evolution of Human and Animals Behaviour at the University of Turin. I developed my thesis at the CNR-ISMAR of Ancona. The project was based , in South Adriatic Sea, on the characterization of anchovy’s spawning and nursery area’s indentifying spatial preferences in relation to some environmental variables. In this period i worked at the extraction of Sardina pilchardus and Engraulis encrasicolus otoliths. I cooperated with ‘ Progetto Bandiera RITMARE’ working on the ageing and stageing of anchovy’s eggs. I participated to MEDIAS GSA 17 e GSA 18 program within EC DCF European Frameworks.
From 2014 to 2016 i worked at the University of Bologna in the Biology and Fisheries Laboratory to Fano (PU)- Italy- in which i studied elasmobranchs, crustacean, cephalopods and demersal fishes biological cycles in the North Adriatic Sea. In this period i partecipated to 3 sampling oceanographic campaigns within the MEDITS program. Furthermore i worked at the taxonomy of some demersal species like Spicara spp. applying tools related to body morphometry, otholits morfology and molecular biology.
In the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn i principally work on genotyping of marine organisms associated to Posidonia oceanica applying an integrate approach for the study of the ecology of benthic and pelagic organisms.


  • Characterization and genotyping of marine organisms
  • Support for the use of laboratory tools
