My current research project, Virtual Chameleons in Real Intergroup Conflicts is funded by a Fellowship for Advanced Researchers from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). My previous Postdoc project, UNCOVER (Understanding Collaboration in Virtual Environments) was funded by personal grants from the EU (Marie Curie Fellowship) and the SNSF.
I'm a visiting researcher in the eventLAB, working in the intersection of social psychology and human-agent interaction. Previously I have been a Postdoc researcher in the Advanced Reality Lab at IDC Herzliya in Israel (2010-2013). I received my PhD in Psychology from the University of Zurich (2009).
