Ladybirds in Italy


Job Title: Zoologist
Location: Florence, Italy

Research Interests:

Ecology of non-native species

Science communication and citizen science

I am a zoologist with a PhD in Ethology, Animal Ecology and Anthropology, working as a freelance in management and conservation projects and as a math&sci teacher at secondary school. I am particularly interested in the communication of the effects of invasive non-native species on biodiversity, especially focusing of invertebrates. I am also interested in training adults (professional and general public) on the management of non-native species and conservation of biodiversity, using also new tools to engage citizen scientists.
