Research interests

My research is focused to analyze the resilience and adaptive capacity of mesophotic benthic communities (50 – 350 m depth) from oceanic islands and seamounts to climate-related hazards and other anthropogenic threats (i.e. marine litter). The results of that research will provide essential information for management plans that target the preservation and restoration of submarine islands and seamounts.
