Skills/Expertise Mariagrazia is a biologist with a PhD from the University of Palermo in marine ecology and marine resources management and conservation. Before joining the IES, she was working at the University of Palermo in collaboration to the Marine Institute (University of Plymouth, UK) studying ecological effects of climate changes on marine communities, in particular the ocean acidification impacts. Topics of her previous research activities were the analysis of the species distributions using experimental ecology approaches to highlight biodiversity changes and ecosystem functioning shifts in relation to human impacts and protection measures (Marine Protected Areas). During her PhD she worked for the European Project “EMPAFISH – Marine Protected Areas as tool for Fisheries management and conservation”. She had been post doc researcher for the European project called “Knowledge-based Sustainable Management for Europe's Seas (KnowSeas) at the University of Plymouth (UK) and at the CNR-IIA (Italy). Mariagrazia has broadened her experience assessing Marine Protected Areas effects also from the socio-cultural point of view. - See more at: http://emarine.jrc.it/content/who-are-we#sthash.7K4cKoMl.dpuf
