!!! Under Construction !!!


Hi there, and welcome to my website.

My name is Matteo Rizzuto and I am a 3rd year Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Biology, at Memorial University of Newfoundland. I conduct my research in the Ecosystem Ecology Lab, under the supervision of Dr. Shawn J. Leroux.

I completed a BSc in Biology and a MSc in Evolution of Animal and Human Behaviour at the University of Turin. I then enrolled in a MRes in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation at Imperial College London, which I completed with Distinction.

I am also part of the Terrestrial Ecology Research Group, which brings together researchers with expertise from three different disciplines - Landscape, Wildlife and Ecosystem Ecology - to answer topical questions about forest dynamics and human impact.
