My research interests focus on the connectivity patterns and adaptive potential of marine keystone organisms. In particular, I am curious about the drivers of population connectivity patterns in the marine realm, and in how we can use such knowledge to implement sustainable management measures and advance conservation efforts.
In my current project, I investigate patterns of population connectivity in Mediterranean fishes using genomic techniques, as a means to understand how marine protected areas may benefit fisheries.
