I graduated in Medicine (Pavia 1997), specialized in Neurology (Parma 2002) and I have a PhD in Neuroscience (Parma 2007). I have been a Researcher in psychobiology at the University of Trento and since December 2015 I am a Researcher in physiology at the University of Verona. My research interest is focused on the brain mechanisms at the basis of voluntary movements.
