Since obtaining my PhD in Poultry Science (2002) at The University of Pisa (Italy), the prime focus of my research career has continued to address the various aspects of poultry science, especially nutrition, welfare and biodiversity preservation. I have also dedicated considerable time and energy to numerous projects carried out in developing countries and in association with the industrial sector, with the primary scope of skill transfer. My research interests and desire to interact with the scientific community in international contexts has led me to attend a multitude of congresses (worldwide) and complete several research secondments at INRA Poultry Unit in Nuzilly (France), Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (Spain), and Universidad de Murcia (Spain). Since 2002, I have been teaching bachelor, master, and PhD courses in animal nutrition and poultry science. During the last 10 years, I have expanded my scientific panorama by applying to international research programmes related to the avian biodiversity preservation, innovative poultry nutrition strategies and poultry welfare in different national and EU context (H2020, PRIMA call and Core Organic). Since 20 years, I am member of the WPSA supporting the WG2 on poultry nutrition. I am co-aothor of over 110 ISI papers and section editor of Animal and Journal of Animal Physiology and Animal Nutrition. I was the local chair for the 6th Mediterranean Poultry Summit and member of the scientific and/or organizing committee of over 10 international congresses.
