During her research activity, she performed experiments in the European Large Scale Facilities (ESRF, ILL, Elettra) establishing collaborations with several national and international research groups.
She is currently working in the bio-photonic framework applying light-based technologies to the life sciences. In this context, she participated in the setting up of the laboratory of simultaneous micro-Brillouin and micro-Raman spectroscopy in Perugia (Italy) for the non-contact mechanical and chemical analysis of cells and tissues.
She has filed one patent and has authored of over 70 papers in leading international journals.
