For years he has been interested in studying the adaptation and mitigation of climate change in the wine sector (at different spatial and temporal scales). The main focuses can be summarized in: (i) micro and macro zoning with identification of terroirs; (ii) identification of the relationships between qualitative responses of grapes and physiological behavior of the plant in the modeling field; (iii) assessment of the impacts of climate change on crop adaptability and expected quality of the grapes. He will participate in all project activities and with direct responsibility for WP2 and 11
