She is a geologist with specific expertise in Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology. She gained many years of experience in geomorphological and geological mapping. Her research activities focused mainly on continental successions of Quaternary age, related to different setting: intermontane basins of the Latium, Abruzzi and Umbria areas and piedmont sector of the Abruzzi area. In recent years she cooperated in studies on active faults and paleoseismology.
