I am a post-doctoral research fellow, working in collaboration between Keele University (UK), Washington University in St.Louis and University of Padova (Italy). During my PhD (Psychological Sciences-University of Padova) I have worked on several experimental projects to understand the brain mechanisms of working memory, cognitive control and decision-making in both healthy and pathological conditions, especially in Parkinson's disease. Currently, I am working on age-related differences in brain mechanism underlying motivation-cognitive control interaction, under the supervision of Prof. Todd Braver. My post doc is funded by a global Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship (EU Grant).
