Ivan Camponogara is a Senior Research Associate at the Division of Science. He holds a BA from the University of Udine, an MA, and a PhD from the University of Verona.
Ivan is a kinesiologist investigating how humans process and merge multiple sensory inputs into motor commands to plan and execute skilled action. He uses a multimodal approach that combines behavioral experiments, custom-made experimental setups, a motion capture system, and Bayesian statistics. Ivan's multidisciplinary approach intersects multisensory integration, motor control, movement physiology, psychology, computational modeling, and cognitive neuroscience. His works have been featured in multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journals such as eNeuro and Scientific Reports and leading journals in sensory-motor control science such as Cortex, Neuroscience, and Journal of Neurophysiology.
Before his current appointment, Ivan was a Postdoctoral Associate at NYU Abu Dhabi. In 2015 he received the Young Investigator Award from the Max Planck Institute in Gottingen for his work on walking sound aftereffect in cochlear implanted individuals. He is editor of a special issue in Frontiers in Psychology and co-organized two editions of Glimpses at NYU Abu Dhabi, an exhibition that bridges art and science.
Ivan Camponogara is currently working on visuo-haptic integration in grasping.
