Since my undergraduate studies, I have upheld a consistent research activity, having conducted and presented research for several projects concerning child development, emotion, cross-cultural comparison, and sensory perception.

During my master’s degree, my research interests centered on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD-C) in differing clinical populations.

You can find here an extensive list of my research topics, presentations, and publications:
