Summary of CV:

She is a Post-Doc fellow at Pavia University, where she has had teaching experiences and has been co-tutor for MSC-equivalent students and a PhD student. Her research interests deal with marine and brackish-water benthic communities, ecological indices, and applications of fuzzy logic to uncertain ecological data. She is the creator of a user-friendly software for developing fuzzy indices of ecological quality (F-IND). She participated in national and international projects, and she is author of about 30 scientific papers, 12 of which on peer-reviewed journals.
