Note

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Bern in 2010.

I was a post-doctoral researcher at Columbia University in New York form 2011 to 2012 and at the University of Neuchatel from September 2012 to July 2014.

I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in Prof. Marianne Schmid Mast's lab at the University of Lausanne.

Current Research

I am interested in the relationship between social power and interpersonal sensitivity. My research mainly asks the following question: are high or low power people more accurate at assessing other people states and traits? 

The methodology I use in my research includes eye-tracking, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and virtual reality settings.
