My research activity focuses on various ecological topics. In particular, over the years I have been involved in three main lines of research: a) soil ecology, with particular attention to the biogeochemical cycles of carbon and nitrogen and the role of microorganisms in the degradation of organic matter; b) environmental botany, with particular attention to the relationships between plants (such as Pancratium maritimum, Globularia cordifolia, and Pinguicula hirtiflora) and their environment; c) remote sensing in marine-coastal environments.
I graduated in Natural Sciences at the University of Naples “Federico II” with a thesis in Evolutionary Botany. At the same university I also obtained a PhD in Applied Biology with a thesis on soil ecology in Italian beech forests. After several years of research grants on Ecology at the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli”, I landed as a researcher in Ecology at the University of Molise.
