My profile is that of an agronomist/environmentalist specialized in plant phenology and plant ecophysiological responses to abiotic stresses, from individual to ecosystem scale. My research interests deal with the effects of drivers of Climate Change (drought, rising temperatures, nutrient imbalances and deficits) on plant phenology and on plant ecophysiological responses to the abiotic stresses connected to such drivers, and with nutrient cycling in agricultural and forest ecosystems.
