Academic interests

Research interests

My research interests lie in molecular ecology and conservation genetics of marine species. Using DNA-based tools, I aim at understanding the mechanisms shaping genetic diversity at different spatial-temporal scales and the role of anthropogenic activities (i.e. overfishing, aquaculture, stock enhancement) and climate change in ecosystems’ dynamics and the evolutionary response of marine communities. Mating behavior and reproductive strategies are other areas of special relevance to me. Among others, I am interesting in clarifying the reproductive fitness of released fish and their potential hybridization with wild counterparts.
