Antonio is a post-doctoral researcher at CIBIO-InBIO, Predictive Ecology group (Precol), since June 2013. He is interested in the applying of remote sensing technology and ecological models to quantify biophysical properties of ecosystems and their response to disturbance (wildfire, land use/cover) and climate change. Mountains are the target environment.


Currently, he is addressing four main research questions:

  • Does future carbon and water ecosystem functions provided by the western European protected areas (PA) differ according to alternative management strategies in the PA? Target site: Peneda-Gerês National Park, Portugal
  • Is deforestation and alteration in functional properties of landscape mosaic affecting endangered amphibian diversity patterns? Target site: Ankaratra massif reserve, Madagascar
  • Earth observation of forest dynamics and carbon stocks in small centres of endemism: How could carbon stocks benefit conservation and wellbeing? Target site: Kumbira scarp forest, Angola.
  • Dynamics in forest line across European mountain and their interaction with climate. Target sites: Carpathians, Alps and Pyrenees.


Until June 2013, junior scientist at the Impacts on Agriculture, Forest, and Natural Ecosystems Division from Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change (CMCC). He was focused on historical and long-term fire danger modeling in the Mediterranean Basin under different climate change scenarios and on project management functions for CMCC in the European-aid project ACLIMAS.


He has a PhD in Science and Agrotechnology from University of Milan (Italy), doctoral school “Earth, Environment and Biodiversity”. During his PhD studies, he was visiting PhD student at UC Berkeley-Dept. of Environmental Sciences, Policy & Management (USA) and Univ. of Basel- Institute of Botany (Switzerland). Later, he developed a training period as visiting researcher at University Technology of Sydney- Plant Functional Biology and Climate Change Cluster (Australia).
