Full Professor in Paleontology and Paleoecololgy.

Experienced in the evaluation of composition and structure of present-day and fossil communities and their changes during time, at long and short term, caused by global change and human activities. The research focuses primarily on: extreme environments, including deep-waters (and mostly Cold Water Coral evivironments) and cave communities; bioconstructions and their guilds; biodiversity and alien species in the Mediterranean, mostly in relation to management and protection in MPAs; bryozoans taxonomy. Interest for popularising science through seminars and exhibitions.
