During the postdoctoral career interested mainly in the evaluation of the mechanisms behind aboveground-belowground coupling of the C cycle in herbaceous, shrub and forest ecosystems, studied the effects of the changing climate (warming, variation of hydrological regime, extreme events) on C turnover in plant-soil systems adapted to different climatic conditions (arctic, subarctic, boreal, temporal, mediterranean). Participated in numerous national and international projects, having also a leading role in the realization of the working packages. Obtained two grants to conduct an independent research from the European Commission (Marie Curie COFUND in 2011) and from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD in 2009). Obtained several short-term exchange grants to conduct a research in Germany (Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena and University of Gottingen, Gottingen), Norway (SIOS, Ny-Alesund, Dirigibile Italia) and Russia (Moscow, Peoples University of Friendship). Scientific responsible of Brocon eddy covariance site (grazed alpine grassland).
Author of 21 scientific contributions in high-impact journals, (Citations 777 according to SCOPUS, H- index 10; mean IF 3.7).
