Research Interests

I am interested in understanding how and to what extent new technologies can influence and change our everyday life by reducing stress and increasing our wellbeing.

In particular, my research focuses on email management across devices and how it affects our work-life balance. I am looking at how email habits are changing in our always-online society of mobile and ubiquitous technologies and how behaviour change technologies and personal informatics can help us be less stressed about it. 

My research is part of the Digital Epiphanies project.


I have a BSc and MSc in Psychology from the University of Padova in Italy, my home country. 

In my MSc I concentrated on social ergonomics and HCI and collaborated with HTLab (Human Technology Lab). My MSc thesis focused on multimodal feedback for touchless interactions. 

During the MSc I also spent a year in Finland as a visiting assistant researcher in the Ubiquitous Interaction group, Computer Science Dept. at the University of Helsinki and at HIIT (Helsinki Institute for Information Technology). While there, I worked, among other projects, on haptic feedback perception.
