She teaches courses on Geomorphology (Graduation) and Mass Movement: concepts, conditioning factors and preview methods (Post-Graduation). She has PhD in Geography (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro) on predicting shallow landslides in Serra do Mar (SP) from physically based models. From 2002–2003, she was researcher on the Instituto de Pesquisas Tecnológicas do Estado de São Paulo (IPT) and worked with landslides diagnosis and prediction on the urban areas and mapping of risk areas in the São Paulo city. She is Member of the Executive Committee of Brazilian Geomorphological Union (UGB) as of 2004. From 2003–2005, she was Professor at the Department of Geography - State University of São Paulo (UNESP). Her main research interests are methods are currently used in the spatial and temporal prediction of shallow landslides in a basin scale, analysis of the role of the topography in the distribution of erosive forms and identification risk areas of landslides and floods in urban areas.
