Current research

Eleonora divides her research time between the Association for Cephalopod Research, a non-profit organization based in Naples (Italy), studying methods for humane slaughtering of cephalopods, and her studies as a Research PhD student, investigating the basis of nociception and pain perception in the cephalopod mollusc Octopus vulgaris. The shared goal of her work is to improve animal welfare not only in Research but also in other contexts like public display, farming, fishery and food consumption
