Who am I
Currently, a tenure-track Assistant Professor (RTDb) at the Faculty of Medicine and Psychology, Sapienza, University of Rome. Previously, a Senior Lecturer in Psychological Sciences at the University of East London, and before an Independent Fellow, funded through personal awards, at the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences at the University of Edinburgh (Leverhulme Trust), and at the Department of Psychology, University of Lisbon (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia). I earned a PhD at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh.
My research spans the cognitive sciences across several domains such as language, vision, memory and attention within an ageing perspective and taking into account pathological populations too.
My work combines neuroscientific experimentation with computational modelling aiming to provide an integrated understanding of human cognition.
Always looking for perspective students and scholars that would like to work with me. Send me an email if you could be interested in joining my lab.
Here, the scientific outputs, I produced together with my collaborators.
When available, papers come with data and scripts in OSF to allow replicability and foster open science; time-permitting with brief tutorials explaining core methods and results.
Over time, I have been awarded grants by different funders to develop my research interests. Here, you will find topics and core results stemming from such projects.
The scientific community needs open access to tools and knowledge to be replicable, sustainable and scalable. Here, I share software packages I wrote and teaching resources to contibute know-how about putting science into practice.
