Assistant Professor (Research) at the Department of Business and Management of Luiss University, where I previously held a Post-doctoral position (2017–2020). I spent two years (2015–2016) in the Department of Social Psychology and Social Neuroscience of the University of Bern (Switzerland), first as a visiting PhD student, and afterward as a post-doctoral research fellow.
I studied cognitive psychology at the Gabriele D’Annunzio University of Chieti-Pescara (Italy), where I also got my PhD in functional neuroimaging in the Department of Neuroscience, Imaging and Clinical Sciences. I also studied clinical neuropsychology at the Skinner Institute & European University of Rome, where I got a second level post-graduate master’s in clinical neuropsychology of childhood, adulthood and aging.
My main research interest is decision-making in both individual and group settings. At Luiss University my research work is focused on the study of the cognitive and neuro-functional mechanisms underlying the formation of organizational routines.
My papers have appeared in the European Journal of Neuroscience, Experimental Brain Research, Behavioural Brain Research, PlosOne, Psychology of Sport and Exercise, Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, Frontiers in Psychology, Addictive Behaviours and Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology.
