I am a researcher at the CNR Institute of Clinical Physiology (IFC) in Pisa, with a long lasting experience in the design and validation of cognitive screening tools for subjects of different age levels (from 3 to 18 years old), and in epidemiological studies on the prevalence of Specific Learning Disabilities.

I was the Italian coordinator for the European project DysLang (Dyslexia and Additional Academic Language Learning), and a team member of the Italian AVATAR project, for a new integrated approach to adolescent health and well-being.

I am currently collaborating with the Institute for Computational Linguistics (ILC, CNR) and with the Department of Teaching and Learning at SUPSI, in Locarno, in the framework of two projects, AEREST and ReadLet , aiming at developing ecological protocols and tools for the assessment of reading skills in early graders.

I took my laurea degree in Physics at Torino University, and a PhD in Geophysics a the University of Genova. In October 2010 I obtained a second level MA degree from the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Pavia as an expert in learning disabilities and school difficulties, under the supervision of Prof. Luisa Girelli. I'm currently scientific responsible for the Comphys Lab at IFC.
