My research expertise is on marine ecology. In particular, I focus my study on gorgonian ecology in the Mediterranean Sea. My thesis is divided in 3 goals 1) how to speed up the growth of temperate gorgonians for future restorations plans 2) achieve new gorgonians more resistant to climate change 3) increase the recruitment of temperate gorgonians. I also work with coral and sponges species.
