INTERESTS

She is involved in multidisciplinary investigations of living and fossil foraminifera that include fieldwork (both land and sea), ecological and geochemical biomonitoring and stable isotope stratigraphy focused on understanding the paleoclimate and paleoceanographic evolution of Neogene and Quaternary-Holocene Mediterranean marine records. Her main research interests concern ecological characteristics of benthic foraminifera and the mechanisms of coupling between physical-chemical factors and the response of benthic foraminifera in relation to different stress and pollution.
