Research Interests

I use multidisciplinary approaches integrating functional genomics, transcriptomics, epigenetics, molecular and physiological analysis, to explore the biology of marine organisms and investigate the regulation of cell decision making in biological processes as diverse as the development of embryonic structures (i.e.: how undifferentiated cells choose between different fates) and the plastic mechanisms of cell response and adaptation to the environment (i.e.: the regulation of diel cell activity and of life cycle decisions). Exploring the diversity of marine organisms represents a powerful tool to provide new perspectives in the molecular regulation of cellular functions and their understanding has the potential to help explaining the evolution of life on our planet.
