Biography

I was born in Italy and graduated in Psychology from the University of Parma, then obtained a PhD from Keele University (2007). After positions at the University of Southampton, the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, the Nathan Kline Institute, New York University, and Liverpool Hope University, I joined Liverpool John Moores University as a Senior Lecturer.

My interests are, broadly, memory, ageing and dementia.
