PhD student in Psychology and Social Neuroscience, affiliated with the CoSAN Lab at Department of Psychology, Sapienza University of Rome and with the Neuroscience and Society laboratory at the CNLS@sapienza, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia. My research interest focuses on the application of immersive virtual reality to the investigation of emerging social neuroscience topics like the transformational implications of embodying artificial agents to promote civic virtues and prosocial behaviours. My research is conducted with state-of-the-art tools for exploring the behavioural and physiological reactivity to social interactions.
