I am a computational ecologist working as a Professor/Researcher at the UNGS. I code in R and C++, and try to promote open science and reproducibility. I also like photography, poetry, literature, music, walking, and I love my big family. My actual scientific projects are about global forest patches: early warnings and tipping points. And how climatic change influence ecological networks and biodiversity.

Climatic change is modifying habitats and species interactions, we studies the stability of food webs to these changes.
