I am an ecologist and conservation biologist. After earning a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. at the University of Turin (Italy), I spent six months working for the GIS team in Zion National Park (Utah, USA). I then completed my Ph.D. at the University of Alberta (Canada). Currently, I hold a postdoc position with Prof. Nielsen, at the University of Alberta.
My research has been largely interdisciplinary and ranges from behavioral studies to inference at the community level, conservation planning, and the ecology of disturbed landscapes. I use butterflies and vascular plants as model organisms. During my first postdoc, I am focusing on macroecological patterns and spatial analyses.
