PhD candidate and psychologist
Clinical Psychology Unit for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland
Involvement with youth mental health and research interests and activities
I am a PhD candidate at the University of Geneva, working principally in the field of neurodevelopment disorders. My research interests are neurodevelopment disorders and genetic conditions, such as autism spectrum disorder and 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. My PhD is about social impairments in these conditions, and one of the goal is to use ecological methods such as Ecological Momentary Assessment. I also work as a psychologist, for now mostly involved in psychoeducational groups with children and adolescents with an attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and their parents. I am planning to do a specialization in clinical psychotherapy, in the cognitive behavior therapy orientation.
