She participated in several International and National Research Projects and was involved as co-scientist in charge of research contracts of Glaxo-Wellcome and Bracco Imaging. She co-supervised about 40 "Thesis of Laurea" and 6 PhD thesis. Since 2009, she is the responsible of the CNR-ISTM Milan Unit, within the CNR Research Project "Design, synthesis and tests of molecules and materials for photosensitized solar cells" of the Molecular Design Department of CNR. This project focuses on the synthesis and characterization of thiophene based molecules with targeted opto-electronic properties for photovoltaic applications. Some results of this research have been object of two recently deposited patents. Her research activity is documented by more than 80 publications, 6 patents as well as a number of invited, oral and poster communications to international and national chemistry conferences.
