I work in philosophy of mind, philosophy of cognitive science and philosophical psychology. My main areas of interests include the embodied approach to cognition and emotions, enactivism, and ecological psychology. 

 

I studied philosophy at the State University of Milan and at the Paris-Sorbonne University. I did my PhD at the University of Bologna (with a research stay at the University of Memphis) and defended my dissertation on the topic of mental representations in the embodied approach to cognitive science in 2018.

 

From 2018 to 2020 I was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bologna, where I did research on the affective components of affordance perception and the role of material objects in emotion-regulation. 

 

After that I was a visiting research fellow at the Research and Training Group 'Situated Cognition' at the Ruhr University Bochum. I am currently a visiting post-doctoral fellow at the Institute for Philosophy II at the same university, working on a project on embodied episodic memory. 

At present I am investigating several aspects of forgetting, which include how it works, what it does in our cognitive and affective lives, and its relationship to perception, future-oriented self-projection and counterfactual thinking.

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