Marco Calabria is a Ramón y Cajal Fellow in our Department. In 2009 he finished his PhD in Psychobiology at University of Padua with a thesis about the semantic and episodic aspects of memory for faces and names. During his trajectory as researchers he developed collaborations with different laboratories in Europe such as: the EEG Lab of the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium, INSERM Unit U864 in Lyon, and the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory in Brescia (Italy).

Then he joined the Speech Production and Bilingualism at UPF. From 2009 on his research interests are focused on the study of language production and cognitive control mechanisms in healthy and brain-damaged bilinguals with dementia and Parkinson’s disease. Moreover, he is also interested in investigating semantic memory deterioration both in language and non-linguistic domains by studying patients with neurodegenerative diseases. In 2011 he was awarded with a Juan de la Cierva fellowship and in 2014 with a Ramón y Cajal. He has published 29 papers in scientific and peer-reviewed journals and he has several contributions at international conferences of psychology and neuroscience.
