I graduated from the University of Geneva in February 2020 with a master’s degree in clinical and affective psychology. My master’s thesis was supervised by Prof. David Rudrauf and looked at the influence of uncertainty and perspective-taking in a virtual reality navigation task.
During my studies, I worked at the University of Geneva as an undergraduate teaching and research assistant in the Methodology and Data Analysis research group as well as in the Laboratory for the study of Emotion Elicitation and Expression, where I assisted Dr Eva R. Pool in data management and processing on a project studying the psychological mechanisms linked to obesity.
Currently, I am doing a PhD in psychology under the supervision of Dr Eva R. Pool and Prof. David Sander, with the aim of better understanding the links between individual differences in emotional learning and vulnerabilities to compulsive reward-seeking behaviors.
