I am a natural scientist with a wide interest in Ecology, Zoology, and Conservation Science.

Until now my main research topics have related to the effects of human activity on biodiversity.

My favourite model organisms are birds, although in the last few years I developed a strong interest in dragonflies.

I am a nature enthusiast and, during my free time, I love to explore our beautiful Earth, no matter whether looking for birds, insects, flowers, or gastronomic specialities!

I create this website to readily share my research, publications,​ and also some biowatching highlights spotted during the explorations with Gaia (have a look at the photogallery below).
