Lic.phil.hist, Université de Berne (1985); Dr. phil. hist., Université de Berne (1990); PD Habilitation, Université de Berne, 1998.

Après une formation dans une école normale, j'ai enseigné pendant quelques années dans des écoles primaires, avant de faire des études en psychologie à l'Université de Berne où j'ai obtenu une licence en psychologie.
J'ai également obtenu mon doctorat et mon habilitation à l'Université de Berne où j'ai travaillé en tant qu'assistante et maître-assistante du professeur M. von Cranach. Avec l'aide d'une bourse du Fonds National, j'ai pu travailler à l'Université de Texas A&M, à l'Université de Pittsburgh (LRDC) et à l'Université d'Utrecht (Pays-bas).

Depuis octobre 1995 je suis professeure ordinaire de psychologie sociale du travail à l'Université de Neuchâtel.

    Master's in Psychology (1985); Dr. phil. hist., University of Berne (1990); PD, Habilitation, University of Berne, Switzerland (1998).

After an initial formation as a primary school teacher, and a few years of work in this field, I studied psychology at the University of Bern, where I obtained a Master's degree, the doctorate and where I also did my habilitation. My advisor in Berne was Prof. M. von Cranach. I did my postgraduate work at the University of Berne, and my postdoctoral work at the University of Berne, at Texas A&M University; at the LRDC, University of Pittsburgh; and in Utrecht, NL.

I am a full professor at the University of Neuchâtel since October, 1995 (Psychologie sociale du travail).
