Story
Introduction

I am employed in Ispra, Italy, by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission as a Senior Scientific Officer. After more than 10 years of work in the field of radioecology, mainly mapping radioactivity in the environment (137Cs, Radon), I joined in 2008 the Global Environment Monitoring Unit of the JRC where I coordinate the biodiversity related activities. I am currently working on setting up a Digital Observatory for Protected Areas (DOPA) at the global scale with a focus on Africa. I also work on a web service (eHabitat) for ecological forecasting.

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling and doing wildlife photography.
