I received my M.D. from the University of Bari in 2009. There I practiced as a physician in the Neurophysiopathology Unit and did biomedical research, with a particular focus on multiple sclerosis. In 2012 I joined the Brain Language Lab and started my Ph.D. in Neuroscience of Language. My research dealt with clinical, physiological and molecular aspects of brain (dis)function ranging across neuroepidemiology, neuropharmacology, immunology, and - more recently - neurophysiology and cognitive neuroscience.Current Research:
- syntactic and semantic processing in auditory language perception
- aphasia and language impairments
- electroencephalography (EEG) and event related potentials (ERPs)
