Moreno Di Marco, Lab leader



I am a conservation biologist with a passion for addressing the challenges that global change poses to biodiversity. I am especially interested in developing quantitative techniques for addressing large-scale conservation problems, and evaluate how the solutions to these problems interact with the achievement of other societal goals (such as food production, climate change mitigation, improved human well-being). Since 2009 I’ve worked for Universities, NGOs, and GOs across Europe and Australia, collaborating with >400 researchers worldwide. I have a BSc (2006), a MSc (2009), and a PhD (2013) in Ecology, I am an MSCA and a RL Montalcini alumnum.
