"Alessandro D'Ausilio"

I studied Experimental Psychology and obtained a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from the Sapienza University of Rome (2007 - Prof. Olivetti Belardinelli). During my Ph.D. I spent extended research periods both at MIT (Brain and Cognitive Science Department, McGovern Institute for Brain Research - Prof. Bizzi) and the Eberhart-Karls-Universität in Tübingen (Institut für Medizinische Psychologie und Verhaltensneurobiologie - Prof. Birbaumer and Prof. Lotze). Soon after the Ph.D. I received a three-years postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Ferrara (Section of Human Physiology - Prof. Fadiga and Prof. Craighero). I later joined the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Genova, first as a Senior Post-doc (Prof. Sandini and Prof. Fadiga) and then since 2012 as a Researcher in the Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department. In 2016 I moved to the IIT Center of Translational Neurophysiology for Speech and Communication, hosted by the University of Ferrara.
