About me

Since August 2017, I am a PhD Student at the Department of Sociology, Stockholm University.

Before, I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychological Sciences and a Master’s Degree in Social Psychology at University of Florence, Italy.

Research

My research interests regard social dynamics in online environments, in particular, I have been working on social influence, conformity, group pressure and polarization and how these phenomena are affected by computer-mediated-communication and anonymity.

The aim of my current research project is to analyze how information is processed by users, in particular how news and sources can be evaluated as fake or credible on the Internet, with particular attention to the social dynamics that underlie these processes, and that can be activated in particular settings such as social networks.
