- Research Gate profile
From 1998 to 2003: researcher in ecophysiology, gas exchange measurements at Centro di Ecologia Alpina (CEA), Viote del Monte Bondone, Trento;
Since 2004: researcher in plant physiology, viticulture, GIS modelling at FEM.
The main interest regards plant physiology and eco-physiology. Technical skills and competences include fluorescence, gas exchange, leaf optical properties, plant water status, and microclimate characterization. Laboratory activities regard the use of UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, VIS-NIR Spectrometer, NDVI-systems, SPAD meter, photography, and microscopy.
Basic GIS knowledge supports land suitability studies for viticulture.
