Research work

At the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC), University of Trento, I am a member of the Reasoning and Decision Group (RAD). The research group also includes PhD students, Master and Bachelor students, and internship fellows. The aim of the group is to deepen the theoretical and empirical knowledge of higher-level cognitive processes and to investigate their implications in applied settings (such as medical decision making and environmental sustainability).
