I am a research fellow at the CNR Institute of Computational Linguistics with a dual background in international literature and linguistics. My primary research interests lie in clinical neurolinguistics, particularly in the standardization and implementation of psycholinguistic and neuropsychological batteries in clinical contexts. In recent years, I have been actively involved in administering these kinds of protocols in clinical settings, focusing on testing their efficacy and enhancing their accuracy.
My academic pursuits encompass cognitive linguistics and the intricate relationship between cognitive and linguistic categorization. I am fascinated by how these domains interact and influence one another in language organization, evolution and use.
I earned my MA in Linguistics at the University of Pisa under the supervision of prof. Domenica Romagno. Currently, I am part of a specialized team within the Physiology of Communication Lab, where we administer and manage the ReMind protocol in clinical environments. The project aims to implement the application of advanced computational psycholinguistic methodologies in the assessment and study of subjects with Mild Cognitive Impairment.
