Curriculum Vitae

During my academic journey, I specialized in the morphological identification of Heterocera Lepidoptera, with a particular focus on the Tortricidae family. This specialization was reinforced through active participation in entomological expeditions conducted in various countries, including central and southern Italy, central-eastern Greece, Spain, and Ethiopia. Additionally, I contributed to the development of innovative techniques for managing Thaumetopoea pityocampa (Denis and Schiffermüller, 1775), an important forest parasite. In Greece, I also had the opportunity to participate in the development of prototypes for electronic traps for insect monitoring, with a particular emphasis on dipteran populations, especially Ceratitis capitata Wiedemann, 1824. I conducted monitoring using a considerable number of geo-referenced traps and performed diagnosis through marking of sterile male individuals, always focusing on C. capitata populations. In recent years, I have gained experience in morpho-molecular analysis for pollinator identification, with particular attention to lepidopterans and apoids. Additionally, I have conducted molecular identification of Apis mellifera L. subspecies. Finally, I have actively participated in training courses on hive management, biology, and biomonitoring. This has allowed me to acquire practical and theoretical skills in the field of apiculture, thus expanding my knowledge in the areas of applied entomology and biodiversity conservation.
