She worked in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America on a range of topics but focusing on maternal and child health (MCH). She also worked for 12 years with the Italian National Institute of Health, where she ran an epidemiology training program and led the establishment of the Italian Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (PASSI) and played a major role in establishing the national childhood nutrition survey (OKKIO alla salute) and served as the liaison to a variety of European training initiatives. She currently serves as a consultant for the USAID-sponsored Translating Research into Action (TRAction) project, where she is the lead technical advisor for a series of projects designed to improve equity in MCH services, and for TEPHINET, the international network of epidemiology training programs.
