Research interests

I am interested in multisensory research in general, and specifically in body perception. I work with the terraXcube laboratory (Eurac research), and during my PhD, we planned to investigate whether and how environmental factors, such as temperature, can affect our body representation, perception of the space around us, and tool use.
