Alessio Giarrizzo obtained his master's degrees in neuroscience and cognitive and affective psychology in 2019.
During his basic academic training, he worked on the influence of stress on reward-seeking behaviours with a computational approach at the Laboratory for the study of Emotion Elicitation and Expression of the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences, as well as on interindividual differences in motivation in the Geneva Motivation Lab of the Psychology Section.
With several teaching experiences in the university environment, he is particularly interested in the affective determinants of learning.
He is now doing a doctoral thesis in the field of adult education under the supervision of Professor Nathalie DELOBBE, whom he also assists in her teaching activities.
