Associate Editor of BioInvasions Records
Expertise I am a marine ecologist and my main research topic deals with the study of fouling assemblages in Mediterranean ports, detecting non‐indigenous species and assessing likely vectors of introduction. I have focused my studies on the role of recreational vessels in the spreading of non-indigenous species, but I am also interested in the application of different sampling methods to early detect non-indigenous species, develop manipulative experiments, and create new tools to identify areas at high risk of invasions.
