She is the scientific coordinator for University of Padua and Member of the Steering Committee (Work Package co-leader) of the 7th Framework Programme- Cooperation project “FamiliesAndSocieties- Changing families and sustainable societies: Policy contexts and diversity over the life course and across generations” funded by the European Commission (PI: Livia Olah, University of Stockholm). She is also participating to the PRIN2009 project “ A new childbearing and childrearing regime”, coordinated by F. Billari. She is member of the I-POPS Comité de sélection du fonds d'excellence (2013-2015) at INED (Paris).She collaborate with the on-line journal NEODEMOS.

She participated into several international projects: e.g. “MAGGIE” (Major AGing and Gender Issues in Europe) (6th Framework Programme), (2006-2009) and “FELICIE” (FuturE ELderly Living Conditions In Europe) (6th Framework Programme) (2003-2006); Galileo Project 2008/2009 “Le coût de l’enfant en temps sur le cycle de vie en France et en Italie, “Travail domestique et organisation des temps de vie dans les ménages”, coordinated by University of Paris I, Sorbonne (2005-2007). She was part of an international research network on Gendering European Family Dynamics (2006-09).
She was the local coordinator (University of Pavia) in the PRIN 2007 project “The cost of children.

Since 2001 to 2004, she was research fellow at University of Florence on low fertility (PRIN2002 and PRIN 2004) both coordinated by M. Livi Bacci.

She got a number of grants in a few research centres (ISER, University of Essex; INED, Paris), and to participate international conferences (Euresco, IUSSP).

She was member of the Scientific Commette of the AISP Società Italiana per gli Studi di Popolazione (Demographic Sessione of the Italian Statistical Society).

Research areas
My research interests fall broadly into the areas of low fertility and its socio-economic determinants, with special regards to the relationship between gender role-set, time use and reproductive behaviour.

I worked intensively on the micro-determinant of childlessness, as well.

I am also interested in assessing the socioeconomic conditions of the old population across Europe and their wellbeing.
