Her research interests encompass family planning, contraception and abortion in Latin America, as well as gender studies, among other areas. After her PhD she was awarded a Postdoctoral Ellertson Fellowship at Columbia University-Mailman School of Public Health-Dept. of Population and Family Health, where she developed a research project on health professionals’ moral and religious convictions and their perceptions of legal and illegal abortion in Brazil. As a Marie Curie Fellow at Goldsmiths-University of London (UK) she undertook a new research project on health professionals’ experiences and attitudes towards abortion and conscientious objection in Italy and the UK. She is continuing her research on abortion and conscientious objection in 2013-2015 in Spain, where she has been awarded a Beatriu de Pinós Fellowship at the University of Barcelona (Catalunya).
