About myself

I obtained my Ph.D. at Sapienza University of Rome (Italy) in joint supervision with the University of Montpellier (France) on modeling population dynamics in presence of hybridization with a focus on the hybridization between grey wolves and dogs.
My main interest is the development and application of quantitative methods to evaluate species conservation status and to investigate the processes driving changes in abundance and distribution.
I joined the GMA as a research scientist to work on the
spatial modelization of biodiversity with the objective of producing scenarios of protected area expansion and of restoration in Italy.
I also worked on developing optimal sampling strategies for estimating the abundance of brown bears in central Italy and on developing integrated SDM-IBM models to explore the potential impact of individual differences in shaping species distributions under global changes.
