She was research fellow (2014-2020) and is still scientific coordinator of the project OltrePlinio, dedicated to the study of the art books (33-36) of Pliny the Elder’s Naturalis Historia and to the development of digital tools. She also took part in excavations at the agora of Segesta and in archaeological surveys in Locri Epizephyrii. She organized international workshops, also in collaboration with KU Leuven, and gave lectures and conferences in Italy, Europe, North and South America and South Africa.
