Biography

Research interests

I am interested in social interactions - how behavioral exhanges unfold rapidly between persons. As current methods are not well suited to capture rapid reciprocal processes, I am developing, in collaboration with engineers and computer scientist, computational methods to understand better what happens when we talk with others and apply these methods in couple research and patient-therapist interactions.

Teaching

Modern Methods in Couples and Psychotherapy Research

Affiliations

I was awarded a career grant and work for the University of Bern and Zurich
