Andrea Guazzini

I'm a researcher at the Department of Science of Education and Psychology, of the University of Florence. I'm also a member of the Centre for the Study of Complex Dynamics (CSDC) of the university of Florence, where i'm the supervisor of VirtHuLab. I'm an experimental pscyhologist and i received my Pdh in Complex systems and Non linear dynamics from the University of Florence (2008), investigating with the tool of complex sistems science several aspect of cognitive activity. Currently my research interests are the neural dynamics of vision timing and the modeling of (virtual) social dynamics.

 Lab activities
