Research interests

My research interests are ecology and community dynamics of mesophotic reefs and the deep sea (bathyal zone). I am currently interested on black corals (Antipatharians) ecology, population dynamics, harvesting sustainability and restoration. I love the feeling of exploration and I am also very keen on innovative techniques/technologies for assessing marine ecosystems.
