GIACOMO MASIELLO

MSc student, Sapienza University of Rome

Giacomo is an MSc student in Ecobiology, currently working on single-season occupancy models using camera traps. The aims of his work are to determine the factors that most influence mountain mammals occurrence and to evaluate the effect of livestock presence on their spatial distribution in two ecological corridors of central Italy.

VALERIO MEZZANOTTE

MSc student, Sapienza University of Rome

Valerio is a student in the MSc course of Ecobiology. The aim of his project is to assess the climate exposure of European protected areas. His work is based on the main climate change metrics, such as magnitude and climate change velocity, to evaluate the potential impacts of climate change on these areas under different SSP scenarios.

ANDREA TONELLI

PhD student, Sapienza University of Rome

Andrea is a PhD student, and former MSc student, in the lab working on the prediction of zoonotic risk associated to blueprint diseases. The aim of his PhD project is to assess the zoonotic hazard posed by mammalian viruses at global scale, understanding the distribution patterns of viral diversity, and the priority for monitoring zoonotic risk.

GIORDANO MANCINI

PhD student, Sapienza University of Rome

Giordano is a Ph.D. student funded by the italian National Operational Program (PON) for research and innovation. He is working on climate change exposure measurement to support IUCN Red List climate change assessment, in collaboration with the sRedList working group. He is also interested in the effect of global change on human-biodiversity coexistence.

CHIARA DRAGONETTI

PhD student, Sapienza University of Rome

​Chiara is a PhD student, and former MSc student, in the lab working on the impacts of global change on mountain biodiversity from a local to global scale. She completed a MSc where she studied the change of the niche breadht of mountain's mammals under future climatic conditions, and an internship where she investigated to role of corridors for local movements of mountain mammals.
