I am an Associate Professor in Ecology at the University of Trieste (Italy). Research in my lab is focused on understanding the ecological consequences of animal behavior. We combine large-scale field-based projects with cutting-edge quantitative approaches. I have conducted field projects in Europe (Italy, Austria), Africa (Kenya, Libya, Mauritania, Tunisia), south-east Asia (Indonesia), Australia and the US.
Below are two links to videos featuring current research projects in my group:
Small mammals big personalities
Carnivores of Maine
and a feature article about our projects
"No scientific theory is worth anything unless it enables us to predict something which is actually going on. Until that is done, theories are a mere game of words, and not such a good game as poetry"
JBS. Haldane (1937)
