Research interests

For my PhD project I am investigating the changes of the Quaternary vegetation in the area of Julian Alps, using palynological analyses. Mainly, by understanding the factors that influence the changes, especially the anthropogenic influences on the environment. As part of the analysis of the modern pollen influx, my main objective is to provide a reference framework for the reconstruction of past vegetation changes in the highlands.
