I am a biologist, in 2015 I obtained the PhD in neuroscience from the University of Parma (Italy). I am leading several studies focused on the expression and recognition of vitality forms. Since August 2019, I am working at IIT (CONTACT lab) where I am carrying out experiments on human-robot interactions collecting fMRI and kinematic data.
