I am a PhD student at the Max Planck Research Group Language Cycles (MPI CBS, Leipzig, DE) with a background in psychology (UNIMIB, Milan, IT) and cognitive neuroscience (UM, Maastricht, NL). My current research interests are on neural oscillatory dynamics, entrainment, statistical learning and predictive coding. In my PhD, I focus on the effects of temporal predictions in language processing using advanced non-invasive brain imaging techniques such as magnetoencephalography (MEG).
November 2020 - August 2021
- In this 9-months research internship at the MPI for Psycholinguistics, I joined the "Language and Computation in Neural Systems" group (PI: Dr. Andrea Martin) for a project focussing on rhythmic computations in internal models of speech, supervised by Dr. Sanne ten Oever. I acquired practical skills in MEG data collection and analyses, programming (MATLAB, Psychtoolbox-3, FieldTrip) and scientific writing. I wrote my MS thesis titled: "Oscillatory phase biases perception of ambiguous words".
