I obtained a Bachelor Degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” (1998) and a PhD in Natural Resources from the University of Idaho (2007). After a post-doc in Lausanne with prof. Antoine Guisan, I’m currently Assistant Professor in Zoology for the University of Rome “La Sapienza”.

I’m interested in biogeography, macroecology, evolutionary biology, and conservation biology from local to continental/global spatial scales. My research is mainly focused on terrestrial vertebrates and mediterranean ecosystems, with a strong emphasis on statistical analyses in a spatially explicit context.
