I teach Conservation Biology, Natural Resources Management and Mammalogy and I'm in charge of the Department Conservation Biology Lab since 2003.


My research area ranges between "Applied Population and Community Ecology" and "Landscape Ecology" and in the last five years my main interests have been focused on three main topics:

  • Effects transport infrastructure on wildlife, including description of road/rail kills patterns and determination of main landscape features associated with fatality hotspots; quantification of barrier effect for species with different vagility; and evaluation of the effects of linear infrastructure disturbance on abundance and space use of different wildlife species;
  • Effects land use changes and habitat fragmentation on landscape functional connectivity and implications for long-term metapopulation persistence;
  • Biodiversity recovery and habitat rehabilitation in strongly changed and degraded areas.
  • Wild game population management and recovery.


I've studied different species and communities, but my main targets have been mammals. I've dedicated a large part of my research to the study of voles, but in the last eight years a large part of my research have also been devoted to bats, rabbits and carnivores.
