Human geographer and spatial analyst focusing on 5 main themes: (1) ecosystem spatial planning, (2) natural resources management, (3) disaster and climate change risks reduction, (4) public health, and (5) influence of social and cultural behaviour on “spatial” response to environmental changes. Worked in applied project in Europe, Asia and Africa, using GIS to better inform decision makers. Conducted training for public managers in multi-cultural settings and taught academic courses since 2013.

This study estimates the geographical disconnection in rural Low-Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) between First-Mile suppliers of healthcare services and end-users. This detachment is due to geographical barriers and to a shortage of technical, financial, and human resources that enable peripheral health facilities to perform effective and prompt dia...
This study estimates the disconnection in rural Low-Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) between the First-Mile suppliers of healthcare services and the Last-Mile end-users. This detachment is due to geographical barriers and shortage of technical, financial, and human resources. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are vital for rural communities. Public and...
Background: The connection between last-mile hotspots and first-mile hubs is hindered in rural Uganda by geographical barriers, and a shortage of technical, financial and human resources. Prompt diagnosis and treatment is so a chimera for large part of rural population. Technology offers smart and affordable solutions that reduce financial and spac...
The flow of big data-driven information across the web, known as Internet traffic, is growing in volume, velocity, variety, veracity and value. Scalable data systems connected through the web or other IT platforms as mobile-friendly apps produce a network where information and experiences are shared in real time as never before. Digital value chain...
Background Rural populations experience several barriers to accessing clinical facilities for malaria diagnosis. Increasing penetration of ICT and mobile-phones and subsequent m-Health applications can contribute overcoming such obstacles. MethodsGIS is used to evaluate the feasibility of m-Health technologies as part of anti-malaria strategies. Th...
This study discusses the application of a multiple logistic regression analysis in Khao Chai Son and Mueang Phatthalung districts (Phatthalung Province in southern Thailand), which were the two worst flooded districts in the 2011 inundation. The aim is to test an easy, rapid, and cost-effective method to asses flood susceptibility in a data-poor co...
With the aim to address some of the complex needs of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) management, the results of the “Monitoring Mediterranean Marine Protected Area” project (MMMPA) are here synthesized in a series of timely and original guidelines.
Small scale and recreational fisheries monitoring and management is one of the most important challenges that MPAs have to encounter, from a socio-economical, cultural and ecological point of view. The difficulty to monitor these activities is mainly due to the fact that from one hand, small-scale fishing shows strong heterogeneity combining differ...
The purpose of this paper is to show how mobile health (M-health) applications may help geo-localization of malaria diffusion. This process innovation enhances quick diagnosis and selected treatment of malaria, TBC, and parasitic diseases. The background is represented by godforsaken environments that show disconnections between remote (cloud) diag...
Even though coralligenous habitats are considered to be important hotspots for the Mediterranean biodiversity, little is known regarding their response to human pressures. One of the widely recognized threats of coralligenous is recreational and artisanal fishing that may cause severe damage or mortality events to long-lived, key structural species...
The protection of the so-called essential fish habitat (EFH: habitats where fish concentrate for recruitment, spawning or feeding) from the negative impacts of human activities -including fishing activities- is one of the most important concerns throughout the Mediterranean basin. A key challenge in the effective management of marine resources is t...
Sustainable management and exploitation of coralligenous bio-constructions is one of the most important concerns of the last decade throughout the Mediterranean basin. Their importance has been recognised under different international, European and national conservation frameworks (e.g. Habitats Directive; European Water Framework Directive). In pa...
Coralligenous habitats are considered an important bioconstruction that confers great structural and functional complexity hosting more than 20% of the Mediterranean species. Besides their importance, little is known of their ecological needs to achieve adequate management. Fisheries can pose a serious threat on benthic communities, damaging or des...

Mollusc culture if properly managed, may help decrease capture fisheries over-exploitation in Vietnam, and possibly become an alternative income for local fishermen. The definition and characterization of zones suitable for aquaculture is pivotal for its success and sustainable development, and this study aims at determining the suitability of Argo...
Overfishing and progressive environmental degradation of the Vietnamese Cau Hai coastal lagoon appear to be threatening the ecological integrity and water quality of the largest estuarine complex of Southeast Asia. This study assessed the relationships between the density of traditional fisheries and organic matter sedimentary contents in Cau Hai l...
