Research scientist at the Institute of Marine Sciences (CNR) in Venice. Her research interests are focused on biogeochemical cycles both in coastal and deep marine environments, and in particular on processes concerning particulate suspended matter and carbon export. Additional interests concern the role of atmospheric inputs in the biogeochemical cycles and educational scientific activity.
She participated in many scientific cruises (Adriatic sea, Ionian, Eastern Mediterranean) in the frame of national and international projects.


She participated in many national and international research projects (SOMFlood; INTERREG III; Intervento 72 - Campo Sperimentale in Mare, INTERREG II, SINAPSI,  Eurodelta-European Coordination on Mediterranean and Black sea prodelta, EU MAST III (Mediterranean Targeted Projects II – MATER), PRISMA 2, PRISMA, MAST (Marine Scientific Technology). She studies transfer and sedimentation processes of particulate matter (organic and inorganic fractions) in the column water and vertical fluxes (sediment traps), recent marine sediments, and the role of atmospheric depositions on the  biogeochemical processes. Additional activity are education and popularization of science.
