I am interested in the neural mechanisms supporting the encoding and retrieval of episodic memories. During my Ph.D. with Dr. Lluís Fuentemilla at the University of Barcelona, I used electroencephalography to investigate the effects of event boundaries on episodic memory encoding, finding a fast reactivation of the encoding patterns of the just-encoded episode at event boundaries. In my current work, I am interested in further understanding the mechanisms supporting event segmentation, resulting in coherent episodic memories. I am particularly interested in how neural oscillations relate to the encoding of sequential (episodic) experiences, as well as in the influence of prior knowledge on novel episodic encoding.
