Madalina Bucur

Madalina obtained her MS degree in Clinical, Developmental Psychology, and Neuropsychology at the University of Milano-Bicocca, working on masked priming and embodied cognition with Davide and Roberto Bottini. She came back to the lab after a while as a Research Assistant, working on word meaning and masked priming, although in a less embodied way. Quite notably, her Master work took the form of a JEP:G paper.

Madalina is about to take up a position as a PhD student at CIMeC, Trento, to work with Costanza Papagno.

Benedetta Cevoli

Benedetta got her BS in Psychology at the University of Trieste in 2017. During her internship in the lab, she was involved in research projects investigating the cognitive mechanisms that underlie the processing of written language in developing readers, carrying out behavioural and eye-tracking experiments. She's also quite intrigued by the role of sleep in the consolidation of newly acquired information and the effects of bilingualism on cognitive function.

Benedetta is now a Research Assistant at Royal Holloway, University of London, UK, with Kathy Rastle and Jakke Tamminen.

Piermatteo Morucci

Piermatteo completed his master studies in Linguistics at University College of London before joining Davide's lab at SISSA as a research assistant in 2016, and then again in 2017. In the lab, Piermatteo investigated word meaning in congenitally blind people, to assess the role of perceptual experience in shaping semantics. Piermatteo is now a PhD student at the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language, with Nicola Molinaro.
