I am currently a post-doctoral researcher and teaching assistant affiliated with the Institute for Social Sciences of Religions (ISSR) at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. I hold a Specialist degree in Pedagogics and a Ph.D. in the Study of Religions (specialization in the Psychology of Religion). 

My research interests include:

  • meditations and, more broadly, contemplative practices 

  • self-transcendent and other types of non-ordinary experiences 

  • stress & coping/emotion regulation

I value mix-methodology, and in my research, I combine different methods and levels of assessments, ranging from psychophysiology to qualitative approaches.
