Graduated in Physics at University of Bologna (Italy) in 1982 and attended a Master in “Theory and Applications of Computational Machines” at University of Bologna in 1983. From 1984 to 1988 she worked as Software Analyst for Geoseismic Data at Aquater Spa, a company of ENI Group. From 1988 to 1992 she was employed as Software Analyst in Cartographic and Photogrammetric Data at Ecobit Spa (Italy). Since 1992 she is professor of Mathematics of MIUR. She graduated in Mathematics (2000) at University of Camerino (MC), developing research activities on shape analysis and models of biological structures using non-Euclidean geometry. In 2001 she received a Master degree in “Methodologies of e-learning” at University of Florence, Italy (2001). Since 2003 she worked as a teacher of Statistics at University of Bologna. In 2009 she received a Philosophical Doctorate in Mathematics and Statistics in Computational Sciences (MaSSC) at University of Milano, with research applications on computational methods and morphological analysis in Neuroimaging in cooperation with IRCCS Institute Fatebenefratelli (Brescia). In 2015 at University of Bologna, she received a Master degree as trainer for teaching of Mathematics
