Sara Andreetta

Sara obtained a Ph.D. from University of Udine in 2014 with a thesis on the linguistic assessment of patients with aphasia. After a postdoc at University of Nova Gorica (SLO), she joined LIMBO lab in 2017. Sara tries to understand how patterns of a meter can enhance our ability to keep poetry in long-term memory.

Roberto Bottini

Roberto received a degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Padua and a PhD in Anthropology and Epistemology of Complexity at the University of Bergamo. Before joining SISSA, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the New School for Social Research in New York, University of Milano-Bicocca and the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences in Trento. His main interests are language processing and evolution, consciousness, abstract thinking and cognitive neuroscience of blindness.

Jon Carr

Jon completed his PhD at the University of Edinburgh, where he explored the evolution of language and conceptual systems through a combination of computational modelling and experiments. Jon is interested in Bayesian and information-theoretic approaches to learning and reasoning and how such principles can explain the high-level complexity observed in human behaviour and the culturally evolved phenomena that arise from such behaviour. At SISSA, Jon has joined Davide Crepaldi's Language, Learning and Reading lab to work on statistical learning in reading. Personal website: 

Mattia D'Andola

Mattia is a postdoc researcher in the Visual Neuroscience Lab directed by Prof. D. Zoccolan, where his main research interests involve the study of complex features development in the visual cortex, with a particular focus on high level areas of the ventral stream, using data obtained by neural recordings in both anesthetized and implanted rats. 

Alessandro Di Filippo

Alessandro believes that science is the best tool we have today to explore nature and understand ourselves. His experiments aim to explain a complex phenomenon from the neuronal level to the behavioural one. He is currently investigating multisensory perception in rodents, by employing a novel experimental design which he developed.

Kristina Egumenovska

Kristina's current work is on language and rules of inference, in the lab of Alessandro Treves. She applies methods for identifying optimal models of brain connectivity with parameter estimates of simultaneous and lagged connections among brain regions. Her interest in fundamental questions concerning the nature of time and cognition has led her to research in cognitive neuroscience, but she loves art creation as much as syllogistic inference.

Francesca Franzon

Francesca's main interest concerns the role of cognitive and communicative pressures in shaping language structures.

Shrikanth Kulashekhar

Shrikanth Kulashekhar is a post-doctoral research fellow in Domenica Bueti's Time Perception Lab. He is interested understanding the neuronal mechanisms that govern the processing of temporal information in the brain using fMRI and EEG.

Jaroslaw Lelonkiewicz

Jaroslaw is an experimental psychologist working at Davide Crepaldi's L2R lab. He is interested in the mechanisms governing language comprehension and production. In L2R lab, he investigates statistical learning  - he uses data-mining and massive behavioural experiments to identify and then test the learning-critical features of language. Besides statistical learning, he explores the role of imitation and prediction in language processing.

Brent Parsons

Brent Parsons is a post-doctoral fellow in Domenica Bueti's Time Perception Lab. His research investigates how temporal dynamics in the world and in the brain influence perception and action.
