Welcome to the website of
I am a cognitive scientist with an interdisciplinary background (philosophy, psychology, neuroscience) interested in attention and perception.
In my current line of research, I investigate the dynamics and predictive aspects of visual perception with neurocognitive methods that offer high temporal resolution (EEG, MEG). I usually add concurrent eye-tracking to monitor gaze behaviour and to allow for more naturalistic viewing conditions.
In my previous research, I have investigated visual attention, saccadic eye movements, unconscious perception, and mind-wandering during visual search with behavioural methods, eye-tracking, and EEG. I still maintain an interest in the interdisciplinary study of human consciousness and I have a strong propensity to Bayesian ideas and Bayesian statistics.
At the moment, I am assistant professor (RTDa) at the Centre for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC) at the University of Trento, Rovereto, Italy. I collaborate with the Salzburg Brain Dynamics Lab, at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Salzburg, Austria, and the Predictive Brain Lab at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Radboud University, Nijmegen, Netherlands.
My work has been and is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the European Research Council (ERC), and, most recently, by the Italian Ministry for Universities and Research (MUR).
A long time ago, I created an online app to approximate the Bayes factor for ANOVA designs. It is part of Felix Schönbrodt's collection of statistics apps.
