She then moved to the Centro Andaluz de Biologia del Desarrollo at the University Pablo de Olavide in Sevilla (Spain) for her post-doc, where she could learn the main techniques related to the genetic model C.elegans.

Since March 2011 she works as Assistant Professor of Medical Genetics at the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health of the University of Padova.  She is interested  in studying the pathogenesis of rare neurometabolic disorders. She has been working with different organisms in order to model these diseases, from the unicellular S.cerevisiae up to C.elegans and Zebrafish.

She is also interested in clinical research on rare diseases, particularly in the field of neurocutaneous disorders and she works in the Neurofibromatoses outpatient clinic in the Clinical Genetics Unit at the University Hospital of Padova.

She teaches Molecular Genetics and Medical Genetics in different academic courses, medical residency programs and in the PhD program in neurosciences at the University of Padova. She is now supervising the PhD student Valeria Morbidoni.
