Assistant Professor

About Me

I am a cognitive scientist with a focus on social attention and human-robot interaction. I obtained my PhD in Psychology at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK, where I examined attentional biases toward emotional expressions in social anxiety. I then joined the University of Reading to gain teaching experience and accreditation. Most recently I have used my expertise in neuroscientific methods such as EEG and eyetracking to study how people interact with humanoid robots compared with other humans, as a postdoc in the Social Cognition for Human-Robot Interaction team at the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa. In 2023, I started as assistant professor in Human Factors at the Cognition, Data & Education section (BMS).
