Interests

I am starting a PhD course under the supervision of Dr Denes Szucs. I will study the electrophysiology of numerical cognition with a focus on mathematical anxiety.

I am also working on a project investigating the neural correlates of the integration of auditory and visual information using MEG and MVPA analysis in collaboration with the Centre for Mind/Brain Science (CIMeC) of the University of Trento, Italy.
