ExpertiseI am a psychology researcher at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the CNR, Italy. My research focuses on mindfulness and its effect on psychological well-being and cognition.
Only recently, I have started to investigate the influence of Environmental Sensitivity (ES) on mindfulness. In particular, I am interested in how ES influences mindfulness skills, that is awareness and acceptance, and how they interact in determining mental health.
Currently, I am working on a project concerning the relationship between mindfulness, ES, and sleep problems, with particular attention to the mechanisms underlying sleep reactivity and insomnia. In the future, I plan to work on the effect of ES in determining the outcome of mindfulness-based interventions.
