Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

Ecology, taxonomy, biology and diversity of marine fish. Fish assemblages associated with natural and artificial (extractive platforms and shipwrecks) habitat by means of visual census techniques (ROV and SCUBA). Relationship between habitat complexity and fish assemblages. Feeding ecology of large pelagic fish. Studies of biodiversity in marine habitats, including hydrothermal system. Impact of marine litter on benthic habitat and species. Transfer of contaminants in the marine trophic web. Fishery management. Studies on artisanal fisheries. Protected Species and habitat. Effects of protection measures on fish assemblage in marine protected areas (MPAs). Alien species.
