I hold a Master Degree in Biological Sciences (1988) and a PhD in Marine Ecology (University of Pisa, 1995). I have more than 20 years of experience on fishery studies, fish and shellfish population dynamics, stock assessment, gear selectivity, impact of fishing gears, analysis of landing and discard data. I am co-author of more than 40 papers on international scientific journals.
