Research activity

Phylogeography and conservation genetics of different vertebrate species in the Alps (Lagopus muta, Tetrao tetrixTetrao urogallus and Salamandra atra). Landscape genetics of common frog (Rana temporaria) in Trentino Province. Molecular basis of host-parasite interaction in Apodemus flavicollis and Tetrao tetrix.

Research interests

I’m interested in the study of neutral and potentially adaptive genetic variation in endangered/managed vertebrate species with the aim to obtain useful information for their conservation and/or management.

Conservation Genetics, Phylogeography, Evolutionary Ecology.
