Classical education (1971, score 55/60), degree in Natural Sciences AA 1974/75: 110/110 magna cum laude.
Researcher at the University of Trieste since 1981.
She has been involved  in soft bottom zoobenthos research and from  this experience her interest was driven to fisheries stock assessment and management, focused on bivalve mollusks, a key resource in the Adriatic. She has been and is responsible for the Trieste university of national projects financed by the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, with other scientific institutes and universities and  the results obtained  are at the base of several national laws. She collaborate with fishermen Consortia too for  sampling and management strategies implementation, and special attention is paid to the demographic structure of the species involved. This is   a crucial point for a correct assessment due to the  still largely poor knowledge on the calcification processes in marine environment. This aspect is covered thanks to the expertise of the Department of Mathematics and Geosciences and  it has been possible to highlight  crucial differences in growth, not evaluable with classical methods, but essential topic in  the quite complex environment of the exploited areas.
