ESR12 portraitAbout me…

I was born in Naples (Italy) and studied Psychobiology of Behaviour (Applied Psychology) at University of L’Aquila. After an internship in applied biology, I decided to focus my career on research and moved to the UK where I took my MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience with a dissertation titled Investigating the P300 with a Dry and Mobile EEG.

Why I joined PACE…

Being interested in the physiology of movement, rehabilitation and assisting techniques, the project seemed like the perfect opportunity to expand and exercise my knowledge. Moreover, being part of a bigger network is definitely an added bonus, invaluable in the field of neuroscience.

My Project…

My project focuses on patients suffering from Spinal Cord Injury and how specific assisting technologies called Brain Machine Interfaces can aid this particular cohort. We will compare healthy individuals to the patients to make sure future devices will be tailored to the specific needs of this population.
