Her activity focussed on the application of mathematical models to forecast the environmental fate of pesticides and the development of new time trend indicators to assess the human and environmental risks associated with the use of plant protection products.
Recently her research activity focused on the assessment of the impact of the Directive on Sustainable Use of Pesticides at Italian level and the evaluation of the level of implementation of different measures included in the existing national legislation for the determination of the overall risks that pesticides pose with regard to the use-phase in the life-cycle of pesticides and the development of Guidelines for Sustainable Use of Pesticide in a multi-stakeholder process. The project targets to develop instruments for the easy identification of the areas to reduce or mitigate risks and to provide the appropriate solutions at farm level. The guidelines developed are accompanied by a diagnosis software to identify bottlenecks in the whole lifecycle of pesticides at farm level.
She is also involved in the EU ERASMUS+ project SUPTraining for the Development of an e-learning platform for the sustainable use of pesticides
