Physicist (Università la Sapienza di Roma, 2002) with a PHD in Polar Sciences (Università di Siena, 2012) on a long-term monitoring experiment in Antarctica (Weddell Sea).

Since 2002 technologist at Istituto nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia where she is responsible of the technological and logistical aspects of complex deep-sea experiments. As supervisor for the experiments and for data quality analysis she takes care of the check, calibration and test of the scientific instruments installed on the autonomous underwater observatories for geophysics and environmental monitoring. She supervises the field activities on board ships and contributes in the subsequent multidisciplinary data analysis.
