Davide Crepaldi

Born October 1979 near Milano, Italy, Davide got his PhD in Psychology, Linguistics, and Cognitive Neurosciences at the University of Milano‑Bicocca, Italy (with a significant spell at Macquarie University, Sydney). During his PhD, he worked with Claudio Luzzatti on the neuropsychology of nouns and verbs. He then moved to Royal Holloway University of London, to work on the visual identification of complex words with Kathy Rastle and widen his toolbag with experimental psychology, ERP and computational modelling. Davide was then back to Milano Bicocca in 2010, taking up an indepdent Research Scientist position thanks a FIRB-Futuro in Ricerca grant from the Italian Ministry of Education. In 2015, he moved to SISSA as an Associate Professor in Cognitive Neuroscience.

At SISSA, Davide leads the Language, Learning and Reading lab, and is the Head of the Cognitive Neuroscience PhD. An ERC grantee, he works with a team of around 15 people on various research projects on statistical learning, morphology and word meaning. A neuropsychologist by background, Davide developed a varied research portfolio, which now includes psycholinguistics, neuroimaging, electrophysiology, eye tracking, and computational modelling. During his career, Davide has attracted nearly 3M Euros of research funding, from 6 different agencies. He reviews papers regularly for journals such as Cognition, JEP:G, JML, JEP:LMC, Cortex, Neuropsychologia and Neuroimage (among ~35); and was recently appointed as Associate Editor at the British Journal of Psychology. Davide is also an active member of his research community, having being in charge for organizing a numbers of different congresses/events (such as the International Morphological Processing Conference in 2017 and the 2016 edition of the Trieste Encounters in Cognitive Science).
