Eleonora Vagnoni holds a BSc in Behavioural Sciences and Social Relationships and an MSc in Neuropsychology and Functional Recovery in the Life-span from University of Bologna, Italy. After her master degree, she undertook a professional internship at the Centre for Studies and Research in Cognitive Neuroscience (CsrNC) in Cesena (Italy) under the supervision of Prof. Giuseppe di Pellegrino. In London she joined, as a research assistant, the BodyLab of Prof. Matthew R. Longo at Birkbeck, University of London, and the research group of Prof. Patrick Haggard, at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (UCL). She completed her PhD at the Department of Psychological Sciences, Birkbeck, University of London under the supervision of Prof. Matthew R. Longo. Her PhD was focused on the relationship between space perception and emotion investigated through the visual looming effect. Her PhD was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
Eleonora is currently working as a post-doctoral researcher at KatLab. Her project is mainly focused on the influence of affective touch on peripersonal space representation.
