Research interests

• Application of traditional (physiological and biochemical) methodologies to evaluate the toxic impacts derived from climate change, the higher availability of classic to emergent contaminants and abiotic parameters such as tidal exposure.
• Ecotoxicity of emergent elements, nanoparticles and rare-earth material in aquatic systems
• Interactions and effects of different climate change scenarios with emergent pollutants
• The impacts of climate change on bivalves response
• Performance of relevant species: ecological, socio-economic and health concerns

Scientific activities

2018-2019: ASARISAFE project (Safety and sustainable management of valuable clam product in Portugal and China), under Dr. Rosa Freitas supervision.

2018-2019: Collaboration and traineeship with CIBM (Centro Interuniversitario di Biologia Marina ed Ecologia Applicata “G. Bacci”) (Livorno, Italy) in the ecotoxicology and biomarkers laboratory of Professor Carlo Pretti with the aim of analyzing the physiological and biochemical responses of the Mytilus galloprovincialis (mussel) after the exposure to CNTs (carbon nanotube) and Triclosan under different salinities.
