My main research interests are spatial ecology and conservation biology. I did a MSc in Applied Ecology at Hedmark University of Applied Sciences (Norway), where I did my master thesis on wolf spatial ecology and dispersal patterns.

I am currently a PhD student at the CTFC. My current research focuses on understanding the impacts of global change on the biodiversity of agricultural ecosystems. Specifically, I study how pseudo-steppe bird populations respond to landscape heterogeneity, agri-environmental schemes and species-specific conservation measures applied during last years from both an ecological and demographical perspective. Ultimately, I aim at evaluating the effectiveness of different conservation measures at different spatial scales in order to improve the conservation of pseudo-steppe bird populations and maintain ecosystem functioning.
