In 2018 I graduated in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Genoa and in 2020 I received my Master’s degree in Neuroengineering at the same university.  

In April 2024 I became Ph.D in Bioengineering and Robotics defending my thesis titled "Neural bases and behavioral responses of vitality forms  in human-human and human-robot interactions" 

I'm currently Post Doc Fellow at the COgNiTive Architecture for Collaborative Technologies (CONTACT) Unit at the Italian Institute of Technology of Genoa.
