My research has been mainly aimed at studying human time perception within sensory, motor and social interaction domains. I have looked at how we extract time information from sensory signals and use this information to successfully guide actions, I have identified factors that distort our sense of time and studied the mechanisms through which timing is implemented in the human brain.

I am currently investigating with Duncan Brumby, Nadia Berthouze and Simon Julier, how performance in routine procedural tasks can be assisted through augmented reality, as part of the multidisciplinary EC-funded Human Manufacturing (HUMAN) project.

Brief biography

I have a degree in experimental psychology from the University "La Sapienza" in Rome, where I have also obtained my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, both under the supervision of Fabrizio Doricchi. This was followed by a Postdoc at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience working in Vincent Walsh's group. After this, I took a position as a Research Associate at the Department of Experimental Psychology at UCL working in collaboration with Alan Johnston and Isabelle Mareschal.
