Chiara Mancino

PhD student

I obtained a Bachelor Degree in Natural Sciences at the University of Turin and a Master’s Degree in Marine Biology at the University of Tuscia (2019).

I’m currently a PhD student in Environmental and Evolutionary Biology. The title of my PhD project is “Some like it hot (or not?): global changes and conservation of Cheloniidae in the Mediterranean Sea” and the main aim of my research is to study and predict how global changes will affect the distribution and biology of Caretta caretta and Chelonia mydas in the Mediterranean Sea during their entire life cycles, and to provide a complete conservation plan including explicitly existing EU policies.

I’m interested in conservation biology, marine biology, biogeography, and animal ecology with a particular focus on sampling methods and analysis of sea turtles’ ecology and spatial distribution.
