About me

Since then I worked at the former Dept. of Biology (now Dept. of Life Sceicnes) of the University of Trieste, dealing mostly with lichens and biodiversity informatics.
I participated to several national and international projects, and coordinated the LIFE+ project CSMON-LIFE.

CSMON-LIFE aimed at enhancing Citizen Science activities in Italy, and has achieved relevant results.
