I am an associate professor at the University of Geneva and research professor (SNSF professorship) at the University of Fribourg. I work in the philosophy of mind and epistemology. My background is in the philosophy of memory, of perception and of affective states. I have published several articles and monographs on the general theory of emotions (The Emotions: A Philosophical Introduction, Routledge 2012), on the nature of shame (In Defense of Shame: The Faces of an Emotion, Oxford 2011) and on memory. I am currently developing my views regarding emotions elicited by fiction, feelings of familiarity as well as the involvement of the self in emotions.
