I am doing my PhD in the Affective Brain Lab, supervised by Tali Sharot. During the PhD, I will explore how stress interferes with information processing and what are the neural mechanisms responsible. Moreover, I will focus on how biased information processing is related to psychopathology. Before starting the PhD, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology of personality and a Master’s degree in Cognitive neuroscience at Padova University (Italy). During the last year of MSc., I carried out my final thesis at Ulm University (Germany) where I investigated the neural substrates of anhedonia across the population. After graduation, I gained expertise in clinical psychology working in the Psychiatry Department of the public hospital in Modena (Italy).
