Research interests

My previous research has been focused on benthic ecology in the Mediterranean in particular with response to climate change and ocean acidification. 

Currently I am focused on the effect Offshore Wind farms will have on marine life, and especially benthic communities in the Mediterranean. 
I work within the European Project CoCoNET which aims to asses the potential of Offshore Wind Farms co-existing with MPA's (Towards COast to COast NETworks of marine protected areas (from the shore to the high and deep sea), coupled with sea-based wind energy potential).
