She is involved in research activities in the food safety sector and is specifically dedicated to the collection, management and analysis of microbiological and chemical hazard data. Moreover she is involved in designing sampling campaigns aimed at collecting data on zoonotic agents and on antibiotic resistance. In particular she has significant experience in the planning and application of salmonella monitoring and control plans at primary production level.

Dr. Cibin is involved in national and international projects in the food safety sector, specifically: exposure assessment in relation to chemical contaminants, zoonotic agents  and antimicrobial resistance determinants; impact on public health of the use nanotechnologies in the food sector; antimicrobial resistance: occurrence, persistence and the spreading dynamic along the food chain; role of consumers in food safety.
