Short Bio

Federico Plazzi is Senior assistant professor (fixed-term) at the Department of Biological, Geological and Environmental Sciences since 2022. Previously, he was Adjunct Professor of General Biology, Applied Statistics and Evolutionary Zoology at the University of Bologna since 2015. While coping above all with bivalve molluscs, he also worked and still works on other groups, such as hexapods and bony fishes. His research interests focus on the impact of small noncoding RNAs on eukaryotic genomes and nucleus-mitochondrion crosstalk, as well as phylogenetics, phylogenomics, and mitogenomics. To this extent, he also aims to develop statistical and computational methods and tools.
