Born in Italy, Eleonora came to the United States in 2012 to study at Bard College. Here, she majored in Psychology with a concentration in Mind, Brain and Behavior. While her research interests include memory, grounded cognition and psycholinguistics, she has recently focused on the topic of music cognition. As a pianist, she is fascinated by how music can express emotion, and whether this expression can cross cultural boundaries. In her senior project, she investigated the chill response, a sharp increase in arousal often experienced as a shiver down the spine, in Western classical and traditional Chinese music across different populations. She is now attending graduate school at the University of California, Davis, under the supervision of Fernanda Ferreira and supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Her career goal is to conduct her own research as a principal investigator.
