Full Professor at Department of Physics, University of Torino, since October 2011 up to now.
Associate Professor at Department of Experimental Physics, University of Torino, from 2001 up to 2011.
Researcher at INFN (National Institute for Nuclear Research) - Sezione di Torino from 1988 up to 2001.
Ph.D in Physics, Major: Nuclear Physics, University of Torino (September 1989).
At present, she is working in the BESIII experiment to study charm physics and hadron physics at the BEPCII e+-e- collider in China. Here, until September 2016, she has been coordinator of the Electronics of the new inner tracker based on cylindrical GEM detectors. She is working also in the Belle2 experiment at SuperKEKB to study bottomonium physics and hadron physics.
Participated in various International Collaborations of different experiments: ANTIN (CERN, Switzerland),
FENICE (ADONE-Frascati-Italy), OBELIX (CERN), COSY-TOF (COSY, Germany), FINUDA (DAFNE-Frascati-Italy),
on Lambda hypernuclear physics, PANDA (GSI, Germany), to study physics of strong interaction at the future FAIR facility
and AXiS (J-PARC, Japan) on Xi-hypernuclei.
In 2011 she joined SuperB Collaboration to study physics of flavour at the future asymmetric
e+e- collider in Italy. In 2013, since the SuperB project has been cancelled, she has joined the
BESIII Collaboration to work at the design and development of a cylindrical GEM detector. In particular, she is involved in the Front End Electronics of this new detector.
Coordinator of specific tasks (Trigger, Electronics, Run Coordinator) in different experiments.
National group leader at INFN (Scientific Committee III) of an experiment on Associated Strangeness Production,
COSY-TOF (COSY, Germany), where she was member of the Institutional Committee.
She was member of the Collaboration Board of the PANDA experiment as representative of the Torino University.
Currently, referee for the National Scientific Committee III of INFN.
The research activity in such collaborations is supported by more than 250 Publications
on International Reviews.
Presented various contributed and invited talks at International Conferences, Workshops or Schools.
On sabbatical leave in 2009 for ten months at the Kyoto University working in the research group
on Nuclear and Hadronc Physics of prof. T.Nagae, invited by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).
The research activity has been focused mostly on Hypernuclear and Strangeness Physics in the nuclear domain,
in particular on the E05 (AXiS) experiment at the new J-PARC facility.
She published 299 cited papers (total citations: 3862, 780 from 2014 to March 2018), H-Index=32 (SCOPUS)
