Hi, I’m Matteo and I am an ecologist.


I study how organisms interactions shape the world around them. Welcome to my website!

My research focuses on how energy, matter, and information shape the interactions between organisms and their environment. I work to expand models of ecosystem functioning, using a mix of field-based and theoretical studies. I do this by measuring exchanges of matter, energy, and information between organisms and their environment, and developing new theoretical models to predict how ecosystems change as a result. My goal is to expand our knowledge of ecosystem functioning, to improve how we predict and mitigate the impact of human activities on our planet.
