My work aims at understanding the relation between different components of Bodily Self-Consciousness (BSC) and the tendency to behave honestly or dishonestly, with a specific focus on decisions made in social contexts. To investigate this, I have applied different approaches, ranging from online surveys, to one-to-one interactions within Immersive Virtual Reality scenarios, to studies on clinical populations displaying alterations of BSC.

In the past, I have studied how being in love shapes the brain electrical activity and how disorders of consciousness alter the processing of emotional faces.
