Location: Bremen, Germany

Currently President of the International Society for Research on Emotions (ISRE) until 2017. I conducted my undergraduate studies at Giessen University, Germany, working with Klaus Scherer on the role of vocal cues for nonverbal communication. From there I went to Dartmouth College, NH, USA, where I obtained a PhD in Social Psychology in 1989 working with John Lanzetta and Bob Kleck. The topic of my thesis was "Control of emotion". During my time at Dartmouth I focused not only on social psychophysiology but also took courses in AI, modeling of physiological systems, and systems dynamics. For my post-doc I spent three years at University of Geneva, Switzerland, as Assistant/Maitre Assistant and lecturer at University of Fribourg. From 1992 to 2001 I was assistant/associate professor for the biological bases of human or animal behavior at Laval University in Quebec City, Canada. During my time there I was funded by SSHRC and CRSNG and used video games to study the effect of appraisals on physiological changes. During my time there I hosted the ISRE meeting 2000 with Gilles Kirouac. 2001 to 2003 I was senior lecturer of psychology at Hull University UK and since 2003 I am full professor of psychology at Jacobs University Bremen, Germany. Until recently I was associate editor of the journal Emotion as well as Biological Psychology. I am on the editorial board of Cognition and Emotion, Journal of Nonverbal Behavior, and until 2009 of British Journal of Social Psychology. I am reviewer for the EU and regularly review articles and grant proposals. in 2012 a book I edited with Nicole Krämer was published at Cambridge University Press on "Face to face communication on the Internet". In 2015 the "Oxford Handbook of Affective Computing" (edited with Rafael Calvo, Sidney D'Mello, and Jon Gratch)appeared. I am currently involved in three FP7 ICT projects, two of which ended recently: CYBEREMOTIONS (2009-2013), eCUTE (2010-2013), and EMOTE (2012-2015).
