I work as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Philosophy Department at Purdue University. 

I specialize in philosophy of mind, philosophy of cognitive science, and philosophical psychology. In my research I combine methods in analytic philosophy and empirically informed philosophy to investigate how our cognitive and affective processes are shaped by our bodies and the environment we inhabit. 

Through this methodology I have worked on several research topics, which include mental representations, the relationship between perception and action, language, emotion-regulation, and memory. 

My current research interests include:

  • forgetting: how it works, what it does in our cognitive, affective, social and moral lives;

  • the mechanisms and functions of episodic memory;

  • absences in memory and perception;

  • the role of expressive properties of objects in emotion-regulation;

  • situated aspects of norms.

Before joining Purdue, I held research fellowships at the Ruhr University Bochum and I was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bologna. I did my PhD at the University of Bologna with a research stay the University of Memphis and studied philosophy at the State University of Milan and the Paris-Sorbonne University.​

Normally I use the pronouns she/her but they/them are also OK.
