In my prior research experience, I focused on the study of social touch and interpersonal distance. In particular, I took part in an immersive virtual reality study about the role of ethnicity in interpersonal touch, using behavioral measures and physiological measures (such as HR and SCR). I was also involved in a research project investigating the perception of virtual touch in patients suffering from endometriosis. Currently, I am investigating social touch and peripersonal space in autism using virtual reality. I also have experience in clinical neuropsychology and I am interested in studying cognitive, affective and social disorders of patients with acquired brain injury, such as anosognosia and apathy.
