I have been to Liceo Rosmini, in Trento, Italy, to talk about my research with enthusiastic students that are about to choose their academic careers. This was just amazing, I wish best of luck to all of them, I am sure they will find their own path!
Our project "Intergroup dehumanization: the social, neural, and physiological roots of mind attribution in infants and adults" has been funded by the MIUR-PRIN 2022.
Prof. Jeroen Vaes and I at University of Trento together with our collaborators at University of Milano-Bicocca, Dr. Ermanno Quadrelli, prof. Chiara Turati and prof. Elena Nava, are excited to start this new adventure.
December 4th 2020 1-3pm UK time
Host: Centre for Human Brain Health in collaboration with the Institute for Mental Health
Overcoming affective boundaries between the self and the other: perspectives on interpersonal interactions.
Prof. Jeroen Vaes, Dr Laura Crucianelli and myself have tried to show some perspectives from social neuroscience to how we can create bridges from the self to the other. This workshop addressed the academic and health and social professionals audience as well as the general public.

I was invited to give an online talk at the seminar series at University of Essex. The one good aspect of the online meetings is that you get easily connected with many people that were less reachable otherwise.
I have been interviewed by Luisa Alessio for the Italian online magazine OggiScienza. We chatted about my current project. I am very grateful for the opportunity I had to share the storyline of my work in Birmingham. There are many Italian researchers working abroad and I think this is a nice way to let us feel closer to our families. If you speak Italian it is worth it to have a read: https://oggiscienza.it
Due to coronavirus, data collection has to be stopped. Taking advantage of the break to submit a pre-registered report.
Pre-registration to OSF done for the new experiment.
Public engagement activity with Emergency NGO in Marghera, Venice (Italy). That was just a blast. I always find these activities very helpful to link research and society. Thank you for having me.
