Andrea Nadalini

Andrea got his Master Degree in Linguistics at the University of Bologna, with a thesis about the role of lexical and encyclopedic information in bridging anaphora. He joined SISSA in July 2015, first as a Research Assistant and then as a PhD student.

In the lab, Andrea carries out research on semantics and consciousness, trying to disentagle between semantic relationships that can be grabbed even when the words are perceived only subliminally, and those that require conscious access instead. In this context, he investigates metaphorical and semantic masked priming, particularly in the temporal, numerical and affective domains.
