Since 1987, his research activity has concerned the development of mathematical models for the simulation of biogeochemical and ecological processes in coastal and marine ecosystems, with a special focus on their application to the sustainable management of finfish and shellfish marine aquaculture. He has a large experience in time series analysis of water quality, biogeochemical and ecological data, mechanistic modelling, data assimilation, data fusion and design of monitoring networks. He has co-authored more than 60 papers on peer review international journals. He has participated to several EU projects and coordinated the FP7 project MEDINA (Marine Ecosystem Dynamics and Indicators for North Africa). At present, he is coordinating the H2020 project GAIN – Green Aquaculture INtensification in Europe (www.unive.it/gainh2020_eu).
