received her M. Sc. in Clinical Psychology (2016) and completed a second-level post-graduate Master Degree in Clinical Neuroscience and Neuropsychology (2017) at Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan.
In the past two years, she joined in an international programme at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands (2015), where she deepened her knowledge on the role of motivation and emotions in explaining human behaviour. In 2016, she earned a grant as visiting student at the Laboratory of Psychological Medicine and Addictology of the ULB, Brussels, in Belgium, where she improved her skills on neurocognitive assessment and training. Currently, she is a researcher at the Research Unit in Affective and Social Neuroscience and she is collaborating with the Dept. of Psychology (UCSC) of Milan, where she is supervising undergraduate students working on their master thesis. She is also involved in teaching activities, and she mainly gives practical lectures on the application of psychophysiological tools and non-invasive brain stimulation techniques for research and intervention. She gained a well-established expertise in the management and integration of neuroscientific devices such as electroencephalogram, non-invasive brain stimulation (tDCS), biofeedback, eye-tracking, fNIRS; but she is mostly excited by projects that combine behavioural observations with neurophysiological measures. Her main research topics are related to motivational drives, physiological markers of emotions and new-technologies applied to different fields of interest.
