Roberto Bottini

Roberto received a degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Padua and a PhD in Anthropology and Epistemology of Complexity at the University of Bergamo. Before joining SISSA, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the New School for Social Research in New York (with Daniel Casasanto), at the University of Milano-Bicocca (with Davide again) and at the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC) in Trento (with Olivier Collignon). In the lab, Roberto led with Davide (and Olivier Collignon) a funded line of research on perceptual experience and word meaning. He was mostly based at the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC) in Trento, where the neuroimaging part of the project was carried out.

Roberto left us to launch his own lab thanks to an ERC Starting Grant (wow!) and become an Associate Professorship at the University of Trento.
