Her doctoral thesis was the starting point of a research program on the healthy longevity of organizations which in the last 12 years has completed studies about more than 30 Brazilian long-lived organizations. She leads a research group in Brazil about the subjects Challenges to Corporate Growth, Long Term Estrategies and Healthy Longevity of Organizations.

Her studies have been published in Brazil and abroad in scientific journals, books and conferences that have been awarding her original ideas, which have been useful to the management of companies and of various types of organization. She coordinates the Strategy and Organizational Growth Chair sponsored by Visagio, whose studies aim to advance the knowledge about the conception and implementation of strategy in a context of organizational growth, in order to distinguish healthy growth processes from those that are harmful to the continuity of the organization existence.
