He achieved in 2013 a Master degree in Conservation of Nature, in Science and Technology for the Nature and the Environment. He started his activities with a many field work projects supported by Gis elaborations, then he preferred to pass to ecological modelling. In recent years he has participated actively in two different Life+ projects (both regarding ManFor CBD), the first thanks to his Master thesis has involved the modeling of a bat projecting it’s suitability into the future within various managment scenarios , the latter has involved a multi-species analysis of endangered birds inside of two SIC areas for identify local conservation actions and proposals for expansion of the protected areas boundaries.

He’s currently focused on the disciplines that concerns landscape ecology, the distribution of species models and connectivity, integrating these with spatial ecology and point distribution patterns studies. He use Gis software, R and python to solve problems in different ways. Now he’s investigating how different algorithms, settings and form of validation can achieve his goals through indipendent datasets. Actually his work in the LifeLines project is to identify preferential corridors for animals movement in order to better locate efforts to safeguard them.
