I grew up in Verona, Italy. I received my M.Sc. in psychology from the University of Padova, Italy. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Verona in the Department of Neurological and Vision Sciences.
During my graduate studies, I used behavioural techniques to examine size constancy mechanisms, visual illusions, and other related phenomena. I conducted this research under the co-supervision of Prof. Carlo Alberto Marzi and Prof. Silvia Savazzi.
After receiving my PhD, I joined the Brain and Mind Institute as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada to work with Prof. Melvyn Goodale, where I combined visual psychophysics and fMRI to investigate the neural correlates of visual perception in humans. During my post-doc years, I also had the chance to expand my research to sensory-motor control in humans using visual psychophysics, eye movement and kinematic recordings.
I joined the School of Psychology at the University of East Anglia as a Lecturer in December 2012.
