Personal profile

Research interests

I am deeply interested in exploring social and emotional processes, understanding how they influence human experience, behavior, and social interaction. My research encompasses both experimental and methodological work, including the development and application of data-driven and theoretically informed modeling approaches to address these questions. My recent focus has been on the multimodal measurement of emotion, visual social attention, and non-verbal social communication, with particular emphasis on understanding the role of clinical and subclinical conditions in these processes, such as Autism and Alexithymia.

There are two ongoing areas of focus in my work:

  1. The modelling of "degeneracy" in emotional responses, which refers to the many-to-one and one-to-many relationships between behavior, physiology, and subjective affective experience. Mostly fopcusing on multimodal physiology sensing.
  2. The processing of non-verbal behavior in digital content, such as deepfakes.

Additionally, I am interested in potential applications of my work in Human-Computer Interaction, robotics, immersive technologies and digital healthcare.

I am currently recruiting for a funded PhD Position on socio-emotional processing and deepfakes: see here
