Scientific interests

My research, in collaboration with the ICRAM (Central Institute of Research Applied to the Sea) now ISPRA, is finalized to the multidisciplinary environmental characterization of sediments coming from marginal marine environments exposed to anthropic impact and subject to different degrees and type of pollution. It foresees the study, to experimental level, of the benthic foraminiferal assemblages together with the chemical and grainsize analysis of the sediments. Particularly, the study of the foraminifera allows to value the quality of the benthic environment through an ecological approach, integrating that more classical (chemical-physical approach) and to underline the possible presence of environmental stress.
