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 work-life balance and how personal informatics tools can help us regain control over our digital habits. My research interests also include behaviour change and persuasion, haptics and multimodal feedback.


I gained my BSc and MSc in Psychology at the University of Padova in Italy, my home country. 

During my master's I concentrated on social ergonomics and HCI and collaborated with HTLab (Human Technology Lab). I spent a year in Finland as a visiting assistant researcher in the Interactive Systems 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.

My MSc thesis focused on multimodal feedback for touchless interactions.
