Major field of interest is the influence of hydrodynamic patterns on the ecosystem in extreme environments; the interplay of physical/ecological processes and the control they exert on the functioning of the ecosystems. For example the effects of physical and biological mechanisms controlling dispersal and transport across different boundaries. He participated to many cruises on board of research vessels all over the world and he’s been in charge of seagoing high tech instrumentation (moorings and oceanographic sensors) in many cruises in extreme environments as hydrothermal vents, deep sea and polar areas.
