She works as a Permanent Research Associate (Ricercatore) at the same university since June 2000. Her research fields include calculus of variations: lower semicontinuity of integral functionals depending on vector-valued functions, regularity of minimizers of integral functionals depending on vector-valued functions; elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations: existence and regularity of solutions. Other activities include being collaborator for the ERC Advanced Grant: Analytic techniques for geometric and functional inequalities, principal investigator: Professor Nicola Fusco. She served as a referee for some international reviews and gave talks for national and international conferences and seminars in Italian and foreign universities.
