I think of myself as a curious person who loves to get in touch with different realms and ways of thinking, aimed at disseminating knowledge, following the neuroscience thought. My expertise is characterized by a broad background in neurobiology and neurophysiology of neurological and psychiatric disorders, with specific training in neuropsychology.
During Ph.D., my scientific interest veered strongly towards imaging genetics to understand how genes may influence human behavior and neuroanatomy. Next, my researches moved towards the neural basis of cognitive neurorehabilitation in neurodegenerative diseases and acquired brain injury
I love to collaborate with engineers for developing algorithms of artificial intelligence applied to neuroscience and to evaluate the impact of robotic devices on neural plasticity. Last but not least, my later field of interest concerns Positive Psychology, a broad neuroscientific field focused on mental health and well-being
Overall, I can define myself as a Translational Neuroscientist
In 2020, I was included in the list of Top Italian Scientists (http://www.topitalianscientists.org). Ranking n° 229
