Research interests

I am interested in better understanding conscious experience in humans in health and disease using cognitive/affective/behavioral approaches, noninvasive brain stimulation and neuroimaging techniques, reaching out to other disciplines when relevant. My research spans from healthy to clinical populations, with the ultimate goal to generate a breadth of knowledge with the potential to contribute to the development of novel tools with clinical relevance for brain-related conditions.
