Welcome to my webpage!
I am a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience, with a Master Degree in General and Experimental Psychology. After my Ph.D. (2010), I joined the Department of Psychology at Harvard University as a Marie-Curie postdoctoral fellow (2011-2013). I completed the Marie-Curie postdoctoral research program at the Center for Mind and Brain Sciences (CIMeC) of the University of Trento (2013-2014). In 2015, I was awarded an European grant (Marie Curie Cofund program) to carry out research at the Center for Brain and Cognition of the University Pompeu Fabra of Barcelona. Since February 2016, I am tenured researcher (chargé de recherche) at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences Marc Jeannerod of CNRS, France, and the Principle Investigator of the research project THEMPO funded by an European Research Council Starting Grant (ERC Stg).

My research in a nutshell
Two people around a table with food, wine and a candle is a dinner. A dinner is an event.
The processing of events is my case study to understand how the human mind/brain orchestrates the different pieces of information that resolve into a unitary, coherent thought; and how, in this processing, the abstract features (for example: relational structure, agency, causality) and the concrete features experienced through our body/senses (visual, tactile, sensorimotor, etc.) are represented and combined.

In my research, the study of brain-damaged patients, providing important insight into the organization of information in the brain, guides the investigation in healthy adults, conducted with behavioral research methods, non-invasive brain stimulation (TMS) and functional neuroimaging (fMRI).
