I graduated in Italy at University of Padova under the supervision of Prof. Paola Sessa. During my academic career I visited Prof. David Amodio's lab at New York University and Prof. Martin Eimer's lab at Birkbeck college in London, UK. I joined University of Birmingham as a Research Fellow on a Marie-Curie individual fellowship under the supervision of Dr. Simon Hanslmayr and Prof. Ian Apperly. I have been conducting my independent research as a Senior Research Fellow on a ESRC New Investigator grant under the mentorship of Dr. Carmel Mevorach. For this project I have collaborated with Prof. Chris Butler, Prof. Carlo Miniussi, and Prof. Alessio Avenanti. I recently joined the Department of Psychology and Cognitive Sciences in the University of Trento, in Italy, as an assistant professor.
