Simone Pedrini

I'm a Ph.D. student at Curtin University in Perth (Western Australia) investigating advanced seed treatment and enablement technologies (such as seed flaming and coating) to native seed in order to improve seed delivery, seedling emergence, young plant survival and improve the overall effectiveness of seed based restoration. I graduated in Natural Science at Università di Pavia (Italy) researching the effects of climate change on alpine flora. In the meanwhile I've worked at the Center for Native Flora of the Lombardy Region on various restoration project and collaboration with private nurseries for the implementation of a native plant market in Lombardy. Form 2012 to 2015 I have been the co-founder and acting CEO of Flora Conservation srl, the first Italian private company focused exclusively on the production and commercialization of native plant and seeds from northern Italy.
