Her research activity focuses on thoracic neoplasms, with particular attention to lung cancer, lung metastases, and minimally invasive surgical approaches. She has participated in numerous conferences as a speaker and as a moderator/panelist.

Thanks to her study on the prognostic impact of lymph node status in lung cancer, she was awarded the Young Investigator Award during the World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC) in 2016 in Vienna and in 2017 in Yokohama.
