About

My main research interests are related to social perception, emotion processing and embodiment. In particular, I am interested in facial expression recognition, particularly in the role of sensorimotor feedback from mimicry and the role of interoceptive awareness; I am also interested in the role of emotion on word processing and acquisition (in first and second or subsequent languages). Finally, I am interested in investigating interactions between verbal and visual emotion processing.
