Is a cognitive scientist and biomusicologist.
He has earned his MSc degrees from Paris 1 (Pantéon-Sorbonne), Barcelona (UAB), and Venice (Ca’ Foscari). After completing a PhD in Cognitive Biology at Vienna in 2014, Andrea has performed interdisciplinary research in Belgium, Germany, and The Netherlands.
Andrea’s research focuses on the evolutionary origins of music and speech: Why do humans spend so much time making and listening to music? What is its biological function? How does rhythmic complexity in music arise from an interplay among culture, biology, and neurogenetics? To answer these questions, Andrea performs comparative psychological experiments in humans, chimpanzees, monkeys and marine mammals. https://ravignani.wordpress.com
