I am interested in the structure and functioning of lake and coastal lagoon ecosystems, predominantly carrying out studies on phytoplankton and biogeochemical cycles. I have a particular focus on the ecological responses to eutrophication and biogeochemistry in transitional and freshwater ecosystems and the underlying factors that affect the sensitivity of those ecosystems to the external pressures. Eutrophication expresses itself through a cascade of direct and indirect impacts on ecology and economy, with major implications also in goods and services provided by water bodies. Much of my research is based on the ecosystemic approach linking the river basin management and water ecosystems. Other researches are oriented in the development and application of phytoplankton monitoring and indicator tools in the field of the Water Framework Directive and the use of ecological models to assess ecosystem functions.
