Research Interest: The Applied research is devoted to the study of nutrition and growth of aquatic species of commercial interest (shrimp, sea urchin, fish) in confined conditions, inland and off-shore. Connected to the research on the feeding of species of commercial interest is the study of polymer matrices for the manufacturing of functional pellets. Applied research covers activities relating to:
• Formulation of biopolymer matrix based pellets for animal feeding. Polysaccharides obtained from renewable sources are used as binders for the manufacturing of pellets to be employed for feeding of aquatic species of commercial interest.
• Use of biopolymer matrices added with bioactive molecules (edible coating) for the preservation of animal products. Polysaccharides obtained from renewable sources are used, also with the addition of functional biomolecules, for the shelf-life extension of fillets of trout Oncorhynchus mykiss.
Another field of applied  research based on the results deriving from the study of  estradiol-receptor interaction in Octopus vulgaris gave rise to the realization of an environmental  biosensor  for pollutant detection.
