Researcher on emotion elicitation mechanisms during music listening.
Obtained her Master of Science in Psychology specializing in cognitive and affective psychology at University of Geneva where she did her thesis on the individual differences in emotion regulation according to empathy style in a helping relationship under the supervision of Susanne Kaiser. She later joined the Neuroscience of Emotion and Affective Dynamics laboratory where she worked on her PhD in psychology on the topic of entrainment as a psychological mechanism of emotion induction in music listening under the direction of Prof. Didier Grandjean.
My current work focuses on mechanisms of emotion induction during music listening, particularly rhythmic entrainment. I have examined entrainment with subjective measures, EEG, respiration and heart rate to try and capture the multi-componential aspect of this mechanism.
