Research scientist  at the National Research Council since 1996, now with permanent position at the Institute of Marine Sciences in Venice. He has done research work for more than 15 years in biological oceanography of pelagic, coastal, and lagoon environments. His main studies concern phytoplankton communities and dinoflagellate resting stages. Now he’s coordinating research activities in the “Acqua Alta” oceanographic few miles off Venice with special applications in telemetry and automatic data gathering with real time web publication: (

  • Pperative coordinator of line 3.13 (Climatology of the Coastal areas of Northern Adriatic) in the framework of CoRiLa researches in the Lagoon of Venice Responsible of a project
  • Coordinator of the Northern Adriatic LTER (Long Term Ecological Research) site
  • Scientific coordinator of Regione Veneto BIOTECH – CAAT (Eocological monitoring of HAB species)
  • Member of the National Commission for the Safeguard of Venice

He wrote more than 15 scientific paper in ISI journals and some book chapters.
