Marco Palma – UBICA


I am a marine scientist and PhD student in marine habitat conservation and monitoring. I am interested in the ecology and biology of marine species and in the development of field approaches supporting the management of marine environments. My research in GreenBubbles focuses on the development of sampling approaches in the underwater environment based on photogrammetry; using and implementing citizen science for education and data collection; using 3d mapping for communicating science; development of products for scuba diving industry.
