Andy Christen graduated from the University of Geneva in 2009 and he obtained a Master’s degree in affective and clinical psychology. Since 2010, he works as a Ph.D candidate at the Neuroscience of Emotion and Affective Dynamics lab (NEAD, Departement of Psychology, University of Geneva) under the supervision of Professor Didier Grandjean and has joined the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences.
His current research interests are related to the role of attentional and inhibitory mechanisms in the context of emotion perception and regulation. More specifically, his work aims at better understanding the temporal dynamics and the different levels of processing associated with these processes by using behavioral, psychophysiological and brain related measurements, in particular intracranial EEG and functional neuroimaging approaches.
