Research interests

I trained in Evolutionary Biology and established a genetics laboratory at the Centro di Ecologia Alpina, Trento, Italy, in 1997. Now at the Fondazione Edmund Mach, my research interests range from the causes and effects of biodiversity loss (emerging pathogens) and gain (speciation), rodent-borne viruses (especially the Ljungan virus), and conservation genetics of alpine species. All my research is multi-disciplinary and I have strong collaborations across Europe and beyond. I am currently involved in three EU projects: EDENext EuroWestNile  and CONgress .
