Interessi di ricerca

Brain-body interactions underlying prolonged stress responses in daily life, in particular the role of perseverative cognition (e.g., worry and rumination) as a transdiagnostic factor in psychopathology. My research activity combines ecological momentary (though sampling) assessment with ambulatory peripheral physiology monitoring, as well as noninvasive brain stimulation techniques.
