Temi di ricerca
PhD in Circular economy: from waste to feed, the insect solution. My PhD is focused on the use of insect protein meal in monogastric animals, especially in fish.
I perform experimental trial to evaluate the effects of the substitution of conventional protein sources (soybean and fishmeal) by insect larvae meal in fish and poultry feeds: growth performances, animal health (histological evaluations), product quality, and digestibility (in vivo and in vitro). In addiction I perform trial with insect larvae to evaluate different organic waste to be used as rearing substrate in order to assess how substrate influence the larvae nutritional composition and growing time.
