"My current research is in pre-reflective subjective experience and in the methods enabling individuals to become aware of and describe the dynamics of this experience. I am interested in the epistemological consequences of this approach, and in its educational, therapeutic, artistic and technological applications. I also study the process of mutual enrichment of "first person" descriptions and "third person" data (i.e. data that are collected by an external observer or experimenter), notably in the context of "neuro-phenomenological" projects."
