Research interests

My research activity lies at the interface between paleontology and sedimentary geology, with particular focus on paleoecology, taphonomy, biodiversity and sequence stratigraphy. Data are mainly collected over Neogene sedimentary successions of the Mediterranean Basin.

The key themes include Paleoenvironmental reconstructions by means of macro-invertebrates (mainly mollusks) of Neogene sedimentary successions. Taphonomy: Research focuses on the quality of the fossil record with emphasis on long-term biases, time-averaging and temporal resolution. Paleoparasitology: Parasitism is one of the most pervasive phenomena amongst modern eukaryotic life and, by contrast, almost nothing is known about it in deep time. My researches investigate high frequency, climate drive, sea-level oscillations and temporal trends in parasite-host interactions in coastal systems. Stratigraphic Paleobiology: The joint consideration of stratigraphic and paleontological patterns (“Stratigraphic Paleobiology”) yields diverse biological and geological insights. For example, Quaternary mollusk assemblages archive quantifiable high-resolution environmental signatures (e.g., bathymetry) that can augment stratigraphic interpretations. Diversity of Mediterranean Conoidea: Study of the recent fossil record (Plio-Quaternary) aimed at reconstructing diversity pattern of this important group of predators. Additional research interests include development of quantitative methods in paleobiology and geosciences.
