Hello there, welcome to world of science
I am scientist, biology professor, research diver, published author, awarded photographer, entrepreneur, traveler and parachutist. As a research scientist I am conducting original studies covering aspects of zoology, ecology and pathology of sharks, skates and rays, in order to develop long-term conservation strategies across the Mediterranean, and beyond. I am the co-founder and CEO of the Sharklab ADRIA Center for marine and freshwater biology (Malta, EU), and Head scientist of the Shark Tales at National Geographic in Washington, D.C. Now, I bet most of you would not agree with me on this one, but being a shark diver is pretty cool stuff. I enjoy spending time with animals, helping them and trying to understand them. I have worked closely with over 30 species of sharks, skates and rays; as well as other charismatic animals such as comb jellies, horseshoe crabs, snakes, owls, hedgehogs, racoons, lions and way more.
