Scientific activity concerns the durability of materials and the development of surface titanium treatments.
The material durability research is focused the corrosion problems of metallic materials and their protection, with particular attention to cathodic protection, concerning both the electrochemical aspects and its technological and industrial development
The second research line deals with anodizing treatments designed to tune titanium surface properties: interference colors for architectural and design applications; photo induced properties of waste water and air treatments and self-cleaning properties; increased corrosion resistance properties for highly aggressive environments.
Research activities is carried out at PoliLaPP, Laboratorio di Corrosione dei Materiali “P. Pedeferri”.
From academic year 1999-2000 she teaches at the Politecnico di Milano courses on materials science and technology. She is part of the board of PhD in Materials Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano.
