Research areas
The general aim of my research is the implementation of ecologically-based management systems of arthropod pests attacking cultivated plants. My research is focused on basic as well more applied aspects necessary to the development of sustainable solution in pest management.

Integrated pest management and biocontrol tactics:
o Spatio-temporal dynamics of pest and their natural enemies.
o IPM in ornamental crops under greenhouse.
o Biology of invasive pests of importance for fruit orchards and vineyard systems.

ongoing project:
1) Agroecosystem management and trophic relationships in vineyards: implications for pest biological control.

2) Investigation on phenology, population dynamics and management of
Halyomorpha halys (Stål) in Veneto.
