Tiziano Suran

Tiziano received his Bachelor's degreee in Psychological Sciences and Techniques from the University of Trieste in 2013 with a thesis on the influence of facial expressions on implicit prejudice measures. He then went to obtain a Master's degree in Applied Cognitive Psychology from the University of Padova, graduating cum laude in 2015. During this period, Tiziano was awarded with an Erasmus+ Fellowship to complete his studies at the Behavioural Science Institute of Radboud University, Nijmegen (Netherlands), where he worked towards the completion of an experimental thesis on how motivation can affect automatic evaluations driven by subliminal images.

Tiziano is currently studying the interaction between the categorical organization of semantic knowledge and affective knowledge in the brain, focusing on the representation of conspecifics as social categories. His research involves the use of brain stimulation techniques (transcranial magnetic stimulation; TMS), neurophysiological measurements (electroencephalography; EEG) and machine learning (multivariate pattern analysis; MVPA). His topics of interest also include data science, attitudes, implicit measures, unconscious cognition, and motivation.
