I’m a Marie Curie fellow interested in the neurobiological processes underlying social interactions. 

During my previous work, I examined interpersonal neural, behavioural and physiological synchrony in early development. Taking Predictive Processing and Attachment Theory into account, I looked at rhythmic communicative behaviours such as touch, turn-taking, and singing and how those behaviours might help infants and children coordinate with others. Currently, I am studying communicative musicality in early childhood and I am interested in the use of multi-brain stimulation to examine interpersonal neural synchrony during social interactions. My research combines behavioural (micro-coding and motion tracking), neural (fNIRS and EEG), and physiological approaches (ECG).
